For that we need transformation actional action in industry and agriculture, in the way we built cities, in the way we manage them, in the mobility of people and of goods, but it also equally important to take strong measures, and the political will to take those measure. “

STORYLINE
Wrapping up his visit to Mozambique, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres today (12 Jul) toured the area that was heavily hit by a tropical cyclone earlier this year and once again appealed to the international community to “increase its solidarity with Mozambique.

Cyclone Idai, which hit Mozambique in March 2019, was followed by cyclone Keneth six weeks later. Together, the two storms affected more that 2.2 million people in Mozambique.

Guterres visited the “Escola 25 de Junho” school in Beira, one of the most affected areas, where 90 per cent of all infrastructure was damaged during Idai on March 14 and 15. Since then, every day close to five thousand children, divided in three shifts, study in classrooms mostly without roofs. From the five pavilions in the school, only one wasn’t damaged by the cyclone. It opened in February, right before the disaster, and was built with the support of UN-Habitat to be resistant to extreme climate events.

From the school, Guterres left to Mandruzi Camp, a 30-minute drive from Beira, where 480 families are being resettled. They have been given plots of land by the government, but still live in tents provided by the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), the International Organization for Migration (IOM), and other humanitarian partners.

Speaking to reporters, Guterres said he was on a visit of solidarity with the people of Mozambique following the devastation caused by cyclones Kenneth and Idai.

“The UN will never leave” Guterres also said and called for “much more support from the international community to the people of Mozambique,” in order “to allow for effective reconstruction and it is also essential to disburse quickly the commitments already made.”

In September this year, the Secretary-General is convening a climate summit in New York, where he said “we will be asking countries to commit themselves to make sure that we will not have an increase of temperature higher than 1.5 degrees at the end of the century.”

Guterres added, “But to reach that that we will need to be carbon neutral by 2050 and that states will significantly increase their commitments by 2020, the so-called Nationally Determined Contributions, namely dramatically reducing emissions until 2030.”

Guterres met with local authorities and humanitarian workers. He also met with a group of people living with disabilities and albinism, some of the most vulnerable people during a natural disaster.
