According to bank provided information, the specific objectives of the project are: (i) to improve climate resilient infrastructure (ii) to promote climate-resilient income-generating activities and strengthen food security and nutrition and (iii)to enhance insurance mechanisms against climate-related disasters.
The Climate Insurance, Finance and Resilience Project (CLINFIREP) seeks to promote the development of climate-resilient infrastructure and agricultural diversification using climate-smart agriculture practices to enhance Climate Resilience for sustained economic growth in Mozambique. The project also supports the Government national preparedness plan to reduce social vulnerability to drought through adoption of preventive insurance policies and programs and helping strengthen national capacity to respond to climate disasters. This is an important intervention as the effects and impacts of climate change are already being felt in the form of erratic and inadequate rainfall patterns and declining on-farm productivity. The total project cost is 33.94 million Units of Account (47.78 million dollars) and will be implemented over 5 years (2021-2026) in the 10 drought prone districts of the Maputo Province, Gaza and Inhambane Province. It builds on past investments by the Bank on drought resilience and is well aligned with the Government of Mozambique (GoM's) priorities particularly the Disaster Risk Reduction, Emergency Fund, the National Adaptation Plans and the overall policy framework on climate change adaptation and mitigation. It is anticipated that the outcomes of the Project will increase GoM's institutional capacity to develop climate proof integrated development programs and devise adequate climate insurance products, in the targeted areas in Mozambique. The CLINFIREP will also facilitate the participation of the country in the sovereign insurance pool of the African Risk Capacity (ARC) or other insurance mechanisms, which supports countries that experience climate shocks, including droughts and tropical cyclones.
