Session format: Panel
Mozambique has been cyclically affected by the occurrence of extreme weather events. Moreover, the country has also been facing military attacks in the central and northern regions, resulting in forced displacements and land tenure insecurity, and the resettlement of people forced to leave their homes to move to safer places.
This session discusses the Idai and Kenneth cyclones that hit the country in 2019, and the political and military instability in north-eastern Cabo Delgado province. The presentations focus on expectations, fears and challenges of the displaced and host communities, with regard to their rights on land and natural resources, the socio-economic destabilization of displaced communities, and impacts on agriculture production and productivity, as well as on communities coping strategies.
