Mozambique Overview

Mozambique is a presidential republic in southeastern Africa with the capital Maputo. Behind the approximately 2800 km long coastline on the Indian Ocean stretches in the southern half of the country a wide plain. The north is occupied by an approximately 800 m high plateau, which is overlooked by numerous island mountains. There is an alternately humid, tropical, in the south also subtropical climate. Due to the high fluctuations in annual precipitation, both drought years and catastrophic floods can occur.

The population consists predominantly of Bantu peoples who speak around 30 different languages. The official language is Portuguese. The predominant religion is Christianity. Around a fifth are Muslim. The structure of society is shaped by the contrast between a small, rich upper class and the majority of the population who live in great poverty. The widespread spread of AIDS is worsening the situation for the population.

In 1498 V. da Gama reached the coast of Mozambique. In 1752 the country became a Portuguese colony. In 1975 Mozambique gained independence and became a people’s republic based on the Soviet model, with FRELIMO as the state party. The RENAMO emerged as a resistance movement against the ruling regime. In 1976 a bloody civil war began that lasted until 1992. In 1989 Mozambique broke away from Marxism-Leninism and adopted a democratic constitution.

Mozambique is one of the poorest countries in the world and repeatedly suffers serious setbacks due to the many natural disasters. After the service sector with the areas of trade and transit traffic, agriculture is the most important branch of the economy. Tobacco, cashew nuts, sugar cane and cotton are mainly grown for export. Only a small part of the natural resources has been developed. Natural gas, coal and bauxite are promoted.

Climate

Mozambique has an extensive north-south differentiation in climatic terms, as it extends over more than 16 degrees of latitude. The seasonal course is characterized by unique dry and rainy seasons. The climate is tropical in the north and central part and is determined by the monsoon (October to March northeast winds, from May to August southwest winds). South of the Sava the climate is subtropical and is dominated by the southeast trade wind determined (October to March hot and rainy; April to October cooler and drier). Temperatures rise from south to north (annual mean 22–26 ° C). Precipitation is highest on the island mountains in the north and in the central coastal area (1,400–2,000 mm annually), and lowest in the south (around 400 mm); The area on the Zambezi (around Tete and the Cabora-Bassa reservoir) also has little precipitation.

The rise in sea levels and the increase in extreme weather events as a result of global warming make the coastal lowlands of Mozambique an extremely vulnerable landscape. In 2000, after several years of drought, there were weeks of heavy rainfall, which triggered a flood catastrophe with 700 deaths and hundreds of thousands homeless. The tropical cyclone »Idai« led to another flood disaster in 2019, in which the port city of Beira suffered massive destruction. Just five weeks later, hurricane Kenneth hit the coast of Mozambique, undoing all clean-up work.
