The United Nations Human Resettlement Programme’s Resilient Reconstruction Project was launched this Tuesday, May 10, in the city of Beira. This initiative seeks solutions that can reduce the risks related to extreme weather events for about 200,000 people in Sofala, with funding of about 10 million dollars from USAID.
It is an initiative through which the government and its partners intend to rebuild physical, social, and economic infrastructures to reduce the vulnerability of the population exposed to climate risks in three districts of the Beira corridor, namely Dondo, Nhamatanda, and Búzi, which have been buffeted by extreme weather events over the past three years. The project launch took place today in Beira City, in front of members of the Government and its partners.
“A recovery that increases resilience will not only save lives, but will also translate into higher living standards, better quality jobs and more opportunity for all,” explained Cecílio Grachane, a representative of the Post-Cyclone Reconstruction Office, quoted by O País.
