Mozambique’s Strategic Programme for Climate Resilience

Associated Organization: AfDB

The Climate Investment Funds (CIF) have reported on the implementation of Mozambique's US$100 million strategic programme for climate resilience, which was endorsed in June 2011 by the CIF through its Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR) window.
