In cyclone struck Mozambique climate adaptation means using locally sourced material, building homes that can resist floods, learning about biodiversity, growing sweet potatoes or setting up early warning systems.
In a country hit by two devastating cyclones in 2019, local authorities and inhabitants tell us the story of climate change in their regions of Nampula, Inhambane and Maputo. The video starts with an alarm sound in a school: early warning systems are vital against flooding.
“To be honest the community does not know about climate change”, says one of the trainers in the Moma region, north of the country, “We need to say: climate change starts with me, it starts with you. If you do things well, using good practices, then you can control climate change.”
