Mozambique is one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change and weather-related disasters in the world and one of the least prepared to face them. It is, also, a unique shrine of biodiversity, gifted with globally important ecological regions, ranging from rift valley forests to pristine wetlands and marine ecosystems. Mozambique is, eventually, also a country in search of inclusive and sustainable development paths, capable of balancing the acceleration expected from the exploitation of its gas resources and the political and social fractures still marring its structural cohesion.

The European Union and its Member States, thanks to their established, positive partnership with the Mozambican Government and society, are well placed to provide a strategic contribution to this search, encouraging the country to look at the potential of a genuinely inclusive and sustainable development model, shaped by the principles (and evidences) of the European green transition plan. In doing so, partners will have to acknowledge and realistically manage the intrinsic tension between a strong push for climate sensitive policies and the support they consistently and legitimately voice to the effort of the Government and the private sector to develop the off-shore gas investments in Cabo Delgado.

Since the launch of the Green Deal, EU services are committed to translate its vision in Europe's partnerships around the globe, especially with developing countries. One of the main challenges in this effort is to present partner countries with a contextualized narrative, able to provide evidence of the validity of the Green Deal logic in their specific development phases and overall social contexts. Mozambique might be a partial exception. Climate Change is a very topical subject in the country, especially due to the impact of 2019 cyclones and the recurrence of major weather related shocks. While decision makers are sensitive to the issue, transversal policy prioritisation and inter-institutional coordination are insufficient in the light of the measures needed to protect (in the long term) and prepare (in the shorter) the country to climate challenges. In that context, the role of the European Union and the EU Member States is essential in nurturing the concrete commitment of the Government and in providing resources to support climate action and green transition in the country.
