Mitigation: Mozambique has committed to reducing emissions by about 76.5 MtCO2eq from 2020-2030, 23 by 2020 and 53.4 from 2025-2030, however this commitment is conditional on receiving external financial, technical, and capacity building support. Mozambique intends to realize these reductions through implementing policies and programs related to renewable energy and biofuels, natural gas, urban transportation, REDD+ and forest conservation, and waste management and methane recovery. Mitigation action are related to the energy and waste sectors, and engage with issues of land use, land use change, and forestry.

Adaptation: Building resilience, and adapting to climate change, is a priority for Mozambique, specific activities include improving early warning systems for climate risks, integrated water resource management, effective land use, building resilience in agriculture, improved livestock and fisheries management, increasing the adaptive capacity of vulnerable groups and communities, protecting biodiversity, reducing social degradation, building climate resilient infrastructure, reducing vulnerable to climate change related vector-borne diseases, and promoting further research into climate change risks.

International Climate and Environmental Commitments: The Paris Agreement (Party), United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (Party), Kyoto Protocol to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (Party), United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (Party), Convention on Biological Diversity (Party), Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna (Party), Convention on Wetlands of International Importance Especially as Waterfowl Habitat (Party)

Summary

Mozambique is a country on the eastern coast of Africa with a long coastline and considerable natural resources (from arable land to mineral wealth). Despite these resources Mozambique still struggles with issues of poverty and socioeconomic development. Mozambique's development is also threatened by its vulnerability to climate change and associated flooding, changes in precipitation patterns, droughts, windstorms, and rising sea level.
