“Mozambique has undeniable moral authority here, because it is now clear that these natural disasters, which happen more often, more intensively and causing greater devastation, have a lot to do with climate change. Despite that, Mozambique almost does not contribute to global warming, but it is at the forefront of the victims of this global warming. This gives it the right to demand from the international community strong solidarity and strong support, both in the response to the dramas created by the storms that plagued the country and in preparing the country for the reconstruction and preparation for future situations.”

STORYLINE
UN Secretary-General António Guterres arrived today (11 Jul) in Mozambique for a two-day visit to discuss the situation after cyclones Idai and Kenneth with the President and members of the Mozambique government.

In the capital Maputo, UN Secretary-General António Guterres said that "Mozambique has undeniable moral authority" to ask for support from the international community after the cyclones that struck the country in March and April.

Guterres spoke at a press stakeout at the end of a meeting with the country's President, Filipe Jacinto Nyusi, and several members of the government. The natural disasters affected around 2.2 million people and were some of the worst weather-related catastrophes in African history.

In Portuguese, the UN chief said that "Mozambique almost does not contribute to global warming, but it is at the forefront of the victims of this global warming."

He said, “this gives it the right to demand strong solidarity and strong support from the international community, both in the response to the dramas created by the storms that plagued the country and in preparing for the reconstruction and preparation for future situations.”

Recalling the damage caused by cyclones Idai and Kenneth, Guterres said, "the United Nations agencies considered Mozambique an absolute priority” from the first moment and “mobilized the best they had to be with the Mozambican people.”

He noted that it was a “very effective mobilization of the government and an extraordinary courage of the people.”

He called the efforts of the last four months “an extraordinary response."

The country has estimated the costs of the reconstruction efforts at USD 3.2 billion. So far, donors have pledged USD 1.2 billion.

Guterres said, “it is clear that more will be needed; more aid and more support from the international community in Mozambique in order to respond effectively, and not just more support, but the swift implementation of that promised support. That is another crucial issue, in regard to the solidarity of the international community.”

On Friday (12 Jul), the UN chief will visit affected areas and meet with survivors.
