Abstract

The study on "Impacts of Climate Change on Disaster Risk in Mozambique," conducted from May 2008 January 2009 by the National Institute for Disaster Management (INGC) and funded by Denmark, UNDP and GTZ, attempts to provide preliminary answers to the following questions: To what extent will vulnerability and exposure to natural disasters alter with projected climate change, given socio-economic developments, by 2030 and 2060? What is the extreme scenario? What adaptation is needed to reduce vulnerability to these impacts of climate change?

This document contains the main findings in answer to the above. For more information on methodologies followed and detailed results, the reader is referred to the main report. The team members who worked on this study are listed in Annex 1.

For the purpose of this study, Mozambique was divided into 5 zones. Three zones are based on the regional/provincial administrative division of the country i.e. South (Maputo, Gaza and Inhambane provinces), Central (Tete, Manica, Sofala and Zambezia), and North (Nampula, Cabo Delgado and Niassa). The fourth zone is the coastal zone, as it is most vulnerable to cyclones and has the most socio-economic infrastructure, with associated dominant patterns of population settlement. The fifth zone represents the river flood plain systems, vulnerable to both floods and water stress. A detailed baseline description for each zone is given in the main report (agricultural section).
