Workshop // Workshop on the proposed projects on the effects of climate, land use and urbanization on water resources - Maputo, Mozambique

The city of Beira is considered to be heavily hit by climate change. In fact the worst hit city in Africa, therefore it was picked for a project on the effects of climate, land use and urbanization on water resources in the city of Beira took place in the capital of Mozambique, Maputo

That is why researchers and scientists from UNU-FLORES, the Universidade Eduardo Mondlane (UEM) and the Water Research Institute of the Ministry of Science and Technology of Mozambique (MCT), in cooperation with the Universidade Católica de Moçambique (UCM-CIG) held a workshop in Maputo, Mozambique, to discuss this project

The project aims at addressing the effects of bio-physical and socio-economic factors such as land cover and land use, urbanization and others, including soils and sanitation systems, on water resources throughout the year in challenging climate and environmental conditions. The project is also intended to contribute to ongoing and future climate adaptation management plans and activities.

The Beira project will be one of the first initiatives of the UNU-FLORES Operating Unit, which will be established in Maputo in 2014. The main goal of the Operating Unit will be the promotion of a nexus approach to the integrated management of the environmental resources water, soil and waste in Africa.
