Project Fact Sheet for 00080476

Project / Programme Title
Strengthening Local Risk Management and Mainstreaming Disaster Risk Reduction
Brief Project Description
Mozambique is considered as a country highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate-related hazards, such as floods, drought, cyclones and epidemics. The number of people affected by one or more of these hazards has registered an annual increase of almost 5000 people every year over the period 1998 to 2009 . Of these hazards, floods occur with a frequency of 2 to 3 years, as a result of the country’s location downstream of nine large river basins. Drought is also a major concern; in 2009, it was estimated that approximately 1.3 million people within the country are exposed to this hazard . Additionally, more than 60% of the population lives in coastal areas and are thus highly vulnerable to the effects of cyclones storms along the long coastline. With an elevated national poverty rate of 54.7% , a high dependency on rain-fed agriculture, and high HIV rates, the impacts of these extreme events increase the underlying vulnerability of a population already stretched to the limit of its coping strategies. With climate change effects, it is predicted that these hazards will intensify, with increased rainfall variability resulting in more severe floods and droughts, and sea level rise inundating large areas of coastal land. The impacts will reach many different sectors and threaten development progress in the country hindering progress towards meeting the Millennium Development Goals. Furthermore, current development processes such as construction of new infrastructure without disaster-proofing or climate proofing-measures, may also compound the situation of increased vulnerability. As such climate change adaption and disaster risk reduction measures are essential to ensure sustainable development within the country. The DRR Programme in the new CPD for 2012 - 2015 is implemented by two IPs with two projects: MICOA and INGC, MICOA component being under project 00080475 and INGC under 00080476.
