The impacts of climate change and extreme weather events (droughts, floods, and cyclones) can affect entire harvests for the average smallholder cotton farmer, thus their source of economic livelihood and security; making them extremely susceptible to external shocks. This is the reality for a vast majority of Mozambique’s rural population that is dependent upon agricultural production for their source of income.
The Mozambique Climate Resilience Program is designed to mitigate the impact of climate change by de-risking farmer livelihoods and maximizing all possible and existing assets. In the second year of the Program, over €385,000 in public and private sector contributions were invested to service 484 direct beneficiaries across the five projects.
