Floods in Zambezi and Shire rivers, since the second decade of January 2015

Several major roads were interrupted because of landslides and bridges fallen apart: this resulted in the isolation of the localities of Posto Chire (Morrumbala) and Posto Campo (Mopeia) and in the impossibility of implementing any training activity in the fishery centres. Two thirds of the fishery centres cannot be reached via road since the second decade of January. Possible delays are foreseen (3-6 months), particularly concerning training activities in boat construction, fishing techniques, fish transformation and commercialisation.

Actions taken

No viable action before roads are rehabilitated.

The Local Government of Mopeia District built the fish market without envisaging some room for installing ice-making machines.

Delay in procurement and possible delay of machine installation (already been commissioned to a company in Maputo). Possible additional costs due to the construction of the new stage, which is pivotal.

Actions taken

A written request for sent to the Regional Directorate for Fishery and to partner IDPPE in order to secure resources for completing works. Meetings are being organized with local authorities in Mopeia District.
