Sweden Announces $19M Climate Change Support to Mozambique

Sweden announced on Thursday, March 9, support of about 19 million dollars for actions of adaptation to climate change in Mozambique over a period of five years.

The funds will be implemented under the Local Climate Adaptive Living Facility programme, with technical support from the United Nations Capital Development Fund and the Government of Mozambique.

The funds now announced follow previous commitments of about US$13.8 million, delivered between July 2018 and December 2022.

According to the deputy head of Cooperation at the Swedish embassy in Maputo, Luísa Fumo, the Swedish funds have already financed the construction of a new market, in Chigubo district in Gaza province, pointing out that the infrastructure is strong enough to withstand the cyclones that are felt in the area.

“These are small-scale but high-impact investments, which can be transformative for communities on the frontline of climate change,” she said.

According to Luisa Fumo, the Local Climate Adaptive Living Facility programme has helped make investments in the areas of health, education, water and sanitation and other essential services selected by communities in a participatory process and in close dialogue with local governments.

“It was based on the encouraging results achieved in the first phase of implementation of the programme that Sweden and the Government of Mozambique started a reflection on the continuity and expansion of the same to other geographical areas of the country,” said Luisa Fumo.

The project is being implemented in 34 countries in Africa, Asia, Caribbean and Pacific.
