CLIMATE FINANCE EXPERT IN MOZAMBIQUE , Mozambique

Enabel is the Belgian development agency. It implements and coordinates Belgium’s international development policy and primarily works for the Belgian State. The agency also implements actions for other national and international donors. With its partners in Belgium and abroad Enabel offers solutions addressing pressing global challenges: Climate Change, Urbanisation, Human Mobility, Peace and Security, Economic and Social Inequality, and Global Citizenship. With 1,500 staff, Enabel manages about 150 projects in twenty countries, in Belgium, Africa and the Middle East.

Background
Over the past decade, Enabel has implemented development programmes in Mozambique, particularly - but not only - in the energy and water sectors. In recent years Enabel's expertise has increasingly focused on the links between the energy, water and food security sector (agriculture). The partnership with the Mozambican institutions is, among others, characterized by Enabel’s flexibility and ability to respond to the country’s major challenges with innovative solutions (including digitization).

Mozambique has taken significant steps towards the implementation of the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) in fulfillment of the Paris climate agreement. The Mozambique’s NDC prioritizes adaptation to Climate Change and highlights an ambitious mitigation commitment plan to massively reduce CO2 emission from 2020 to 2030, depending upon the support of the development partners in providing the financial, technological, and capacity building to the Government and Civil Society institutions.

To advance its efforts, in April 2017, Mozambique joined the NDC Partnership to mobilize and access additional resources to implement its climate change goals. The NDC Partnership is a global coalition of countries and institutions working to mobilize support and achieve ambitious climate goals while enhancing sustainable development. Members leverage their resources and expertise to provide countries with the tools they need to implement their NDCs and combat climate change to build a better future. Belgium is a member of the NDC Partnership and aims at channeling a part of its support towards NDC implementation through the NDC partnership.

To fully achieve its NDCs and increase its ambition over time, Mozambique will require additional financial and technical support from national and international institutions, from both the private and public sectors.
