Challenges to Mozambican Forests

Mozambique's forests face significant pressure and are increasingly threatened by the demand for small-scale slash-and-burn agriculture, expansion of cropland, timber extraction, and charcoal production. These unsustainable practices have resulted in widespread land degradation and the depletion of once-thriving forests. In addition, these challenges are compounded by the effects of climate change, leading to a rise in destructive floods. The extent of forest destruction is alarming, with Mozambique experiencing an annual deforestation rate of 0.79%. This equates to a staggering loss of nearly 267,000 hectares of forest - equivalent to 1,000 football fields - every day.

How You Can Be The Change

Rethink Consumption Patterns

Consumers wield significant influence in shaping our world. By selecting sustainable options and supporting responsible businesses, we can counteract the harmful effects of mass consumption. If we want natural forests in the landscape, we need to prioritize responsibly sourced wood from certified forests. Let's harness our consumer power to promote sustainability and protect our planet's vital ecosystems. Use it or lose it!
