This document presents the recovery case study of Mozambique after the three biggest floods recorded in the country: the first in 2000/2001, the second flooded Central Mozambique in 2007/2008, and most recently the 2013 floods. It focuses on the policies and practices of recovery from that time until the present. This document summarizes the key findings from the case study.
The document is part of a series of case studies developed by the World Bank’s Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR), the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the European Union (EU) as a component of a guide for developing disaster recovery frameworks (DRF). This guide aims to help governments and partners plan for resilient post disaster recovery while contributing to longer term sustainable development. It is based on practices gleaned from country experiences in disaster recovery around the world. Hence, the development of the DRF Guide entailed the development of country-level case studies as well as thematic case studies on disaster recovery.
