Industrial Pollution and Environment
Mozambique’s primary industrial hub lies within a 30km radius of the capital. It is the toxic impacts of industrial pollution that first became a catalyst for Mozambican civil society to organise and defend their right to a healthy environment.
Water and Development
Mozambique’s predominantly rural population is highly dependent on rivers and riverine ecosystems for their livelihoods. Therefore, the mismanagement of the water resources has not only had devastating impacts on river ecosystems but also on communities that depend on the rivers.
Conservation and Land Use
Mozambique‟s landscape includes extensive forests, unique grasslands, internationally-renowned wetlands and highly diverse marine ecosystems, and this immense natural beauty is also the country’s lifeline.
