Meeting the challenges of climate change: Monitoring Mozambique’s National Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation Strategy

The National Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation Strategy aims to integrate climate change responses into national development planning processes. It identifies the key actions to be taken to reduce the severity of the impacts of climate change— through adaptation measures, the reduction of climate risks, and the creation of benefits through mitigation and low-carbon development. It comprises three pillars:
 
i) Adaptation and disaster risk management; 
ii) Mitigation and low carbon development; and 
iii) Cross-cutting policy and planning.
 
Scientific knowledge on climate change — crucial for the development of policies and plans — is collected, managed and disseminated through a Knowledge Centre on Climate Change (KMC), which was established as part of the strategy
 

Baixo Limpopo irrigation and climate resilience project - Update

 

The Baixo Limpopo Irrigation and Climate Resilience Project (BLICRP) is one of the PPCR pilot projects. It is being implemented in Xai-Xai, a district in Gaza Province in the southern region of Mozambique. It aims to contribute to poverty reduction through an added economic value and to provide an infrastructure that is resistant to climate change. The objective is to increase agricultural productivity by developing 3,050 hectares for crop production (cereals and vegetables), and providing marketing and agro-processing services. The project also aims to strengthen the resilience of communities to deal with climate change related events.The Government of Mozambique (GOM) received a loan from the African Development Bank (AfDB) to finance the project, the total cost of which is US$ 44 million
 

Meeting the challenges of climate change in Mozambique

The government, with support from the World Bank through the Pilot Program on Climate Resilience (PPCR), has been introducing a range of policy and institutional reforms to mainstream climate resilience into the overall government program and into specific sectors. Results from the first phase of the National Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation Strategy are now being monitored using indicators from the National Climate Change Monitoring and Evaluation System. Achievements to date include: improvements to roads in regions that experience extreme flooding; successful rollout of climate-resilient agriculture; improved hydro-meteorological services and early warning systems; and improved access to renewable energy.

Climate Change Technical Assistance Project

The Climate Change Technical Assistance Project (CCTAP) is designed to strengthen the government of Mozambique’s institutional and technical capacity to mainstream climate change resilience into key economic sectors, and use evidence-based results for future development policy and planning.
