Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to bank documents, the project objective is to improve sustainable natural resources management and livelihoods for enhanced resilience of vulnerable communities in selected areas of Northern Mozambique.

The project will strive to improve the resilience of vulnerable communities in selected landscapes of Northern Mozambique, ultimately contributing to addressing some of the key drivers of fragility hampering
development and poverty reduction in those areas. More specifically, it will intersect with the following FCV challenges, which it will seek to address:

  1. limited capacity and resources of formal institutions to manage access to resources in a sustainable and inclusive manner;
  2. insufficient knowledge and enforcement of legislation to protect and manage the country’s resource base;
  3. exclusion of the youth and women from socioeconomic opportunities and from finding sources of livelihoods;
  4. limited capacity and inclusion of local communities in the sustainable management of resources; and
  5. exposure to natural hazards and climate variability that put additional pressure on the resource base.

The project will aim at achieving the ambitious objective of enhancing communities’ resilience by strengthening human and social capital of vulnerable and natural resource-dependent communities, increase their access to basic infrastructure and services, and promote food security (agriculture and fisheries). It will also support relevant institutions to adopt sustainable natural resources management policies and practices, to protect the natural resource base on which the poor depend on for their livelihoods. The project design will revolve around four components:

  1. Enhancing livelihoods in targeted communities, which will be rolled-out through a Community-Driven Development (CDD) approach;
  2. Institutional strengthening for sustainable management of natural resources;
  3. Project Coordination and management; and
  4. Contingency emergency response (CERC).
