 Organisation Description

Soon after the ratification of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification by Mozambique in 1996, the Ministry for the Coordination of Environmental Affair (MICOA), led the set up of the National Co-coordinating Body (NCB), to ensure the existence of a structure for the implementation of the Convention.

The NCB is comprised of representatives of institutions whose activities are related to drought and desertification. These are: ­

  • The Ministry for the Co-ordination of Environmental Affairs, which is the focal point for the CCD and oversees the implementation of the convention; ­
  • The national Directorate of Agriculture of the ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development; ­
  • The National Directorate of Forestry and Wildlife of the ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development; ­
  • The National Directorate of Water of the ministry of Public Works and Housing; and ­
  • The National Institute of Meteorology of the ministry of Transports and Communications.
