    Mozambique was hit by Tropical Storm Ana on 24 January 2022 and Tropical Cyclone Gombe on 11 March 2022. These extreme weather events caused floods, damages to infrastructure (including roads and electricity poles), the evacuation of several thousands of people to temporary shelters, and the deaths of dozens of people. Furthermore, agriculture in these areas of the country was significantly impacted. Since the beginning of the rainy season up till now, it is reported that a total 220 425 hectares of crops have been lost (OCHA, 2022d). This analysis builds on FAO experience in assessing impacts from natural hazards to the agricultural sector and highlights the importance to of regularly updating geospatial information for vulnerability and impact assessments in support to preparedness and response programs. The accuracy of the results provided can be improved by combining additional information, such as agricultural statistics, and field data.

    Mozambique’s forest and wildlife resources are threatened by deforestation, forest degradation and forest fires, in particular as a result of shifting cultivation, illegal logging, poaching and uncontrolled firewood and charcoal production. The country also suffers from a weak governance system, which results in greater increases in forest loss, as highlighted by the forest governance assessment undertaken in 2016. Approved in 2016, following a forest governance assessment, the Mozambique Forest Investment Plan ( MozFIP ) provides a framework for channelling international support to the country’s commitment towards forest sector reforms and transformational change, with national level activities aimed at improving the enabling environment and reducing deforestation and on the ground investments in the provinces of Cabo Delgado and Zambézia The present project was implemented in order to provide technical and strategic support to the implementation of the MozFIP , in alignment with other forest investment efforts in the country and the wider subregion . It aimed to achieve this by strengthening the capacities of public institutions, improving the policy and legal framework, fostering and monitoring the activity of forestry operators and improving communities’ livelihoods, all key players in promoting sustainable forest management (SFM).
