Action to Adapt


Building resilient societies and economies will be key to coping with climate change. Many nations and communities are already doing this but far greater action and ambition will be needed to cost effectively manage the risks and impacts of extreme weather events now and into the future.

Because of its coastal location, facing the Indian Ocean, Maputo, Mozambique is exposed to severe climate risks, such as flooding, cyclones and sea level rise. In addition, 44% of the population lives in poverty and access to services and other infrastructure is low. Heightened environmental risks are compounded with high vulnerabilities to these risks.

Public Private People Partnerships for Climate Compatible Development (4PCCD) empowers the people living in urban poor neighborhoods to design and implement activities to adapt to climate change. These activities include improving and maintaining drainage channels; protecting the water supply; managing local waste; and establishing awareness and communication channels between citizens and relevant institutions.

We talk to Vanessa Castan Broto, founder of 4PCCD about the community-based project.
