The present report is aimed at assessing the level of implementation of the expanded
programme of work (POW) on forest biodiversity of the Convention on Biological
Diversity (CBD) in Mozambique.
Mozambique ratified the CBD on the 24
of August 1994, and by doing so, it committed
itself to the implementation of a series of mechanisms to ensure the sustainable use of
forest resources and the equitable sharing of its benefits, facilitate conservation
actions, allow for the participation of local communities in the management of forest
resources, ensure capacity building for the implementation of the POW on forests,
incorporate activities into national strategies, and attain synergy with other programmes
implemented by international bodies.
