Mozambican Experiences with Disaster Risk Reduction & Climate Change Adaptation

  1. 1. MINISTÉRIO DA ADMINISTRACAO ESTATAL INSTITUTO NACIONAL DE GESTAO DE CALAMIDADES (INGC) Mozambican Experiences withDisaster Risk Reduction & Climate Change Adaptation By: Joao Ribeiro, INGC General Director Davos, 30th Augoust, 2012
  2. 2. A Country vulnerable to Natural Disasters and Climate Changes África do Norte Mozambique África Ocidenta l ÁfricIn Africa, Mozambique is aconsidered as the 3rd most Orievulnerable country to natural ntaldisasters and one of the mostvulnerable to climate change due toits long and low costal zones.

  7. 7. The Institutions and Coordination Structure for DRR and CCA in Mozambique
  8. 8. The Mozambicans’ Approach to DRR and CCAFaze I:Diagnostic study on climate change and the risk disasters inMozambique; 18 scientists where involved (50% Mozambicans, focus onabout 10 subjects and 12 institutions involved); From May 2008 to May2009. Cost US $450,000.Faze II:Identification of solutions to reduce potential impact of climate change.The study started on September 2009 to March 2012, involving 43scientists, focus on 20 subjects, with the cost on US 44,36 millions.Faze III:Will concentrate on implementation of proposed solution and ensuringthe appropriation of Faze II used methodologies and results. Timeframe:July 2012 to December 2015. Budget: US $70 millions.
  9. 9. The National DRR & CCA Strategy1. CCA ComponentIn elaboration by MICOA2. DRR ComponentElaborated by INGC and the official launching will be in October2012.Early Warning Food SecurityCoastal Protection Water: To do more with lessPreparing the Cities Preparing peoplesPrivate Sector Oceanic Extremes
  10. 10. Water: to do more with less (Drought) In 2006 the Mozambique Government approved a Master Plan for Prevention and Mitigation of Natural Disasters, which includes the strategy of developing the arid and semi-arid zones (about 1.200.000 people).
  11. 11. Drought ImpactLack of Food for Livestock in Arid and Semi-arid Areas
  12. 12. Drought ImpactLack of Drinking Water
  13. 13. Drought Prevention/Adaptation ActionsCenter for Resources and multiple Use (CERUM): partnership btw GoM and local communities to find local solutions in arid and semi-arid areas - Drinking Water - Infrastructure: water harvesting - Promotion of adapted technologies (for income generation) - Education: awareness - Health: Nutrition
  14. 14. Water: Installation of water harvesting in public buildings
  15. 15. Water: Water Harvesting in rural areasPlastic tanks Other kind of tank (from local material)
  16. 16. Small Dams
  17. 17. Promotion of Adapted Technologies (Conservation Agriculture)Vegetables (without covering) Vegetables (with covering)
  18. 18. Demonstration of rain water retentionSemi circular water retention for Mapfilwa (Vangueria infausta) = local wild fruit trees local tree
  19. 19. Promotion of Income Generation ActivitiesLocal cummunities trained in income generation activities
  20. 20. Education: awareness and integration in the local curriculum
  21. 21. Future ChallengesImprove inter-sectorial coordination and coordination withpartners;Increase involvement of academic sector in search forappropriate solutions;Up-scaling/divulgation of best practices.
