Climate Change Adaptation in Mozambique Fact Sheet
This adaptation fact sheet provides an overview of sector vulnerabilities and adaptation actions for Mozambique. Climate variability is already affecting Mozambique. Over the past two decades, the country has experienced increased droughts, flooding, and storms, which in some cases have had severe socio-economic implications for the country. Warmer temperatures, shifts in precipitation, and greater frequency and intensity of extreme weather events such as droughts are projected. These climate stresses may exacerbate both climate and non-climate stresses and affect development objectives, such as food security, natural resources management, public health, and economic growth. In recognition of the increasing climate-related challenges, the Government of Mozambique and the donor community have initiated activities to determine vulnerability and adaptation priorities, and to integrate this knowledge into development and sectoral planning. Nonetheless, a number of challenges remain, including developing adequate early warning systems, strengthening planning capacity at the national and local levels, and addressing capacity and financial constraints to carry out adaptation related activities.Find other country and regional climate risk management resources here.
