Disasters, exacerbated by climate change, will be more frequent, more numerous, and have a more devastating impact on communities now and in the future. In 2019 the world witnessed extreme weather disasters severely amplified with extensive damages in different parts of the world. Mozambique was not spared.
During these calamities, the poorest and most vulnerable countries and communities suffer the most, despite being the ones who are doing the least to cause it.
To respond to this, ADPP Mozambique mainstreams climate change prevention and mitigation in all its projects and programmes, whenever possible. In the event of an emergency disaster, ADPP work side by side with the affected communities to provide assistance for them to recover from this. This is done in collaboration with other partners. After the emergency, ADPP continues to work with affected communities, local government and partners to build resilience and ensure their road to sustainability.
In 2019, when Mozambique was hit by two strong tropical cyclones; Cyclone Idai which made landfall in Beira City and cut a path of destruction through Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe and a few weeks later Cyclone Kenneth hit the Northern Provinces. The destructions, loss of lives and livelihood for millions of Mozambicans changed everything in a split of a second.
