Mozambique Receives 12 New Weather Stations

Mozambique received on Friday 7, 12 meteorological stations to be installed in the same number of districts across the country. The equipment should improve the ability to forecast weather events and thus make it easier to reduce the impact of natural disasters.

The representative of the Food and Agriculture Organisation, FAO, and the Minister of Transport and Communications signed the terms of delivery of the 12 weather stations on Friday and on the occasion Mateus Magala announced that two more early warning stations will be installed later this year.

“It’s a contribution, as has been said, that partly fulfils the presidential initiative of a District meteorological station. This year we hope to install two more stations of the same magnitude, one in Xai-Xai and the other in Nacala, as a contribution from the African Development Bank for climate change. Each station will cost two million dollars”.

The FAO’s representative in Mozambique, José Fernandez, emphasises the importance of Mozambique building its capacity to cope better with climate change.

“We have a responsibility to act intelligently to tackle this climate crisis in order to protect our environment for future generations. It is in this context that the FAO in Mozambique continues to work with INAM, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, the Ministry of Land and Environment and other partners to build a more sustainable and resilient future for all.”

The meeting of the technical-scientific commission for climate change was also held on Friday. The event aimed to analyse the country’s exposure to floods and atmospheric discharges.
