PROMOVE Biodiversidade

The National Orderer’s Office (GON) and the European Union in coordination with the National Administration of Conservation Areas (ANAC) and the Foundation for the Conservation of Biodiversity (BIOFUND) held on December 12, 2022, in Maputo City, the 2nd Session of the National Supervision Committee (CNS) of PROMOVE Biodiversidade.

PROMOVE Biodiversidade is a program financed by the European Union and focused on 3 Conservation Areas in the provinces of Nampula and Zambézia, namely: Gilé National Park – PNAG; Environmental Protection Area of Ilhas ​​Primeiras e Segundas– APAIPS and its adjacent coastal areas and Mount Mabu – MABU. These areas were selected for their importance in terms of biodiversity, but also for their high population density, that is, where natural resources are under the pressure of local communities that see resources as an alternative source for their livelihood and income generation, putting their importance in maintaining the integrity of ecosystems and conserving biodiversity at risk.

In order to ensure proper implementation of the PROMOVE Biodiversidade Program, a National Supervision Committee (CNS) was established in 2021, a strategic body whose duty is to ensure coordination and collaboration between the different stakeholders of the Program at the level of Conservation Areas as well as at the national level.

The event was attended by representatives of the European Union, ANAC, BIOFUND, MNEC-GON, MTA, MIMAIP; FNDS, PNAG, APAIPS, the District Government of Lugela, FFS-IGF Foundation, RADEZA, REGECOM, the Provincial Secretariat for the Environment of Zambézia and Nampula, among other participants.
