Special Accomplishments 

Involved in USAID-CCAP: Coastal Cities Adaptation Project (Projecto de Adaptação das Cidades Costeiras ás Mudanças Climáticas) at UEM. This project aims to improve the local capacity to plan for and adapt to the effects of climate change, such as floods, droughts, cyclones, among other natural disasters. The project will be carried out over five years (2013-2018) in partnership with the Municipalities of Pemba and Quelimane, the National Institute for Disaster Management (INGC), local universities (such as Eduardo Mondlane), civil society organizations, and other partners.
