Mozambique's Integrated Landscape Management Portfolio : Mozambique’s Integrated Landscape Management Portfolio (English)

At a time when an integrated approach to natural resource and forest management is gaining prominence worldwide, the Government of Mozambique places sustainable management of natural resources and forests as a priority in its governance efforts, as reflected in the Government’s Five Year Plan 2015-2019 and in the National Sustainable Development Program (NSDP). Sustainable management of natural resources and forests contributes to improving the lives of rural communities. It also stimulates the national economy through promoting the development of sustainable value chains. Our commitment is reflected in the governance instruments that our country has approved. This includes the approval of the SUSTENTA Project, which has the approach to integrate management of agriculture and natural resources, stimulate the economy and improve the quality of life of rural families. This will also help materialize and attain the objectives and targets of the NSDP. The authors are aware that in order to achieve the multiple objectives of sustainable management of natural resources, Mozambique will have to go a long way, together with key stakeholders, such as the Private Sector, Civil Society Organizations, Academia, local communities and others. To take this path towards sustainable, integrated and inclusive development through improvements in spatial planning and arrangements for the different land-uses in our country, authors see the World Bank as one of our most important strategic partners, not only from a financial point of view but from a technical assistance and collaboration point of view.
