For over a decade ActionAid Mozambique (AAMoz) has worked with strategic partner organisations in the south and north-east of the country to promote agroecology initiatives with 80 farmers’ associations consisting of over 8000 farmers. 96% of the members are women and 30% of them young people, cultivating an average of 90.9 hectares per association and striving to improve agricultural production. Despite being crossed by several major rivers, including the Zambeze in the centre and the Limpopo in the south, as well as containing a number of lakes, Mozambique has been impacted by severe and increasingly frequent and prolonged droughts over the past 15 years, resulting in long-lasting pockets of hunger.
