Disasters in Mozambique are mainly climate-related — floods, droughts, cyclones and erosion. Providing access to water is crucial for keeping locals from falling into poverty.
Water resources are often scarce in Mozambique and many locals have to spend hours fetching water every day.
Disasters increase the risk of falling into poverty for those who depend on natural resources for survival.
Young people can be agents of change when it comes to protecting communities from disasters in the future.
