Mozambique

Mozambique, situated by the Mozambique Channel, is bordering Malawi, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.  It has a tropical to subtropical climate. The Zambezi flows through the north-central (most fertile) part of the country. Mozambique is rich in, among other resources, coal, titanium and natural gas.

Key Water Issues and Challenges

  • A long civil war and recurrent drought in the hinterlands have resulted in increased migration of the population to urban and coastal areas with adverse environmental consequences
  • Pollution of surface and coastal waters
  • Desertification
