Dr Katharine Vincent is currently in Maputo to launch a new project on climate change, health, disasters and agriculture in Mozambique.  The project, funded by CDKN, was requested by the Government of Mozambique, who are keen to fill the data gap in research around how climate change will intersect with health status to create vulnerability to disasters in agricultural communities.  The steering committee comprises representatives from the Ministry of Health (MISAU), Ministry for the Coordination of Environmental Affairs (MICOA), Food Security and Nutrition Secretariat (SETSAN) and the National Disaster Management Institute (INGC).  The project will run from June until December, and is being implemented in conjunction with colleagues at the CSIR and Universidade Eduardo Mondlane in Maputo.
