CLIMATE SIGNIFICANCE

Mozambique is highly vulnerable to a number of problems posed by climate change. In the year 2000, devastating and unusual floods had brought the country to a grinding halt. Since that year, 4 million people have been affected by different flood episodes in the country. 

Historically, Mozambique has been subject to tropical hurricanes, or cyclones as they are known in this part of the world. Research reports that the frequency of these phenomena has almost doubled, whilst their average intensity has grown by more than 30% (measured by wind speed). Most recently, in 2017, Cyclone Dineo swept the region, affecting more than 170,000 people in Mozambique alone.

Mozambique’s commitment to adaptation and mitigation strategies is reliant on international aid. The cost and the slow (but very important) returns of climate-adaptation are two obstacles to this country’s strategy, which needs to reinforce other sectors of social affairs. 

The wars fought from the 1960s to the 1990s have taken a terrible toll on the country’s ecosystems and wildlife. Gorongosa National Park, a former safari ground, was revived in an effort to restore the flora and fauna that once thrived like the jade plant, elephants, hippos, lions and antelopes. The park is part of a large network of protected lands which amount to 22% of Mozambique’s territory.

This region has already seen a decrease in its precipitation of approximately 20% since the 1960s. In the same period, the temperature has risen by 1.5°C. Yields of major crops like maize, soybean or cassava are expected to drop by as much as 11% on average and 45% in certain regions.

Changing patterns in temperature and precipitation have already had very real consequences and will continue to do so for the century to come, disrupting this largely agricultural society. All these phenomena factor into the vulnerability of Mozambique. What the country needs now is an adaptation strategy to protect its inhabitants and its coastal zones, more and more exposed to the powers of the elements. There are no shortcuts to the top of the palm tree. Make a donation and sign your impact on this planet!

DATA INSIGHTS

Mozambique is a low-income country, according to the World Bank classification. To understand Mozambique’s position in the fight against climate change, it is useful to observe its history of carbon emissions and exposure to climate risks. The following plots provide a historical overview of Mozambique’s greenhouse gas emissions in perspective to global emission levels, as well as the country’s relative vulnerability and preparedness towards climate change.
