Mozambique Cyclone Idai PDNA

The negative impact of climate change is now a growing reality for Mozambique, a situation which must be considered now and into the future. The country is frequently ravaged by cyclones, floods or drought, and the cyclones and floods of 2019 were the most devastating in recent history in terms of its human and physical impact as well as its geographic extent. A total of 64 districts and 19 counties were directly affected, but almost the entire country suffered from its adverse socio-economic effects.
