The Ministry of Land, Environment and Rural Development needs more than 50 million dollars to combat deforestation and for forest management in the country.
This is the figure put forward in Maputo on Tuesday by Deputy National Director of Forests Imede Falume at the International Conference on Deforestation and Forest Management
At this point in time, his ministry was heavily involved in designing afforestation programmes, he added.
Ansi Pekkarinen, the leader of the forest resources assessment team, called for the implementation of a system of sustainable tree harvesting in the face of climate change.
Concern over the impact of climate change in Mozambique has increased due to the effects of Cyclone Idai and the floods which followed it, which have caused more than 600 deaths and affected about two million people.Source: Rádio Moçambique / Lusa
