Synthesis report. INGC Climate Change Report: Study on the impact of climate change on disaster risk in Mozambique
Mozambique has a coastline of almost 2,700km. Approximately 20.5 million people, more than 60% of the total population, live in coastal areas. In many places this consists of lowlands with sandy beaches, estuaries and mangroves. Survival and everyday life in these areas depends to a large extent on local resources, such as rain-fed farming and fishing, whilst infrastructure is weak or even non-existent. These conditions mean a high vulnerability of both people and landscape to tropical cyclones and sea level rise (Mavume, 2009). Of particular concern is the tendency for people to migrate to the coastal zone, thus placing more people, infrastructure and services at risk.
