Mozambique

Mozambique is one of the most climate-vulnerable countries in the world. Droughts, floods, and tropical cyclones pose a particular threat to coastal communities, transport infrastructure, and livelihoods dependent upon rain-fed agriculture. Mozambique is taking action to enhance its climate resilience.

INVESTING IN MOZAMBIQUE

The CIF is supporting Mozambique’s efforts to mitigate and manage the effects of climate change. PPCR $86 million is supporting infrastructure upgrades, better resource management, enhanced climate services, and the development of local and national capacities for climate resilient planning and action.

FIP $24 million is supporting Mozambique’s national REDD+ strategy to reduce deforestation and forest degradation by 40% by 2030. National- and landscape-level interventions aim to reduce emissions and promote rural development, while the private sector is being engaged to link communities to opportunities provided by major forest sector plantation investment.

TRANSFORMING VISION INTO ACTION

The CIF programmatic approach to investment planning and implementation brings strategic value to CIF recipient countries. Working through a transparent, country-led process, the CIF fosters trust and collaboration among government ministries, civil society, indigenous peoples, private sector, and the MDBs that implement CIF funding . Together they translate Nationally Determined Contributions and other national development and climate strategies into an actionable CIF investment plan. Rather than one-off projects, the plan comprises long-term, sequenced investments that mutually reinforce each other and link to other critical activities, such as policy and regulatory reform and capacity building. Under national government leadership, CIF stakeholders continue to work together to implement the plan, continually assessing progress and sharing lessons learned along the way.
