Climate Resilience Project to Benefit More Than 130,000 Citizens in Inhambane Province

A few days ago in Maputo, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), in partnership with CARE Moz, launched a project worth 6.7 million euros, CBA SCALET+ , to promote sustainable livelihoods and preserve ecosystems, which will benefit around 130 citizens in the southern province of Inhambane in Mozambique.

The project, which includes training communities in sustainable agriculture technologies and climate change resilient crops, is funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection.

The permanent secretary of the Ministry of Land and Environment, Emília Fumo, who took part in the event, explained that the community-based climate adaptation and resilience project in the districts of Mabote, Govuro, Inhambane and Vilanculos, in the province of Inhambane, will benefit 139,900 citizens, of whom 14,900 will be direct and 125,000 indirect.

“This project joins other achievements that the Ministry of Land and Environment has been making with the government of Inhambane province, with local adaptation plans being one of the existing projects where the 13 districts already have plans, of which the districts of Homoine, Maxixe and the city of Inhambane still lack funding,” said Fumo.

According to Fumo, the project involves decision-makers at national and international level, with the aim of promoting a favourable policy and financing environment for community-based adaptation.

The representative of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), Maurício Xerinda, explained that the project will be implemented in three African countries: Mozambique, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
