Mozambique Natural Hazards:
Mozambique is subject to devastating cyclones and floods in the central and southern provinces. There are other serious occurrences in this country, including severe droughts.
Mozambique Environmental Issues:
Mozambique has had an increased migration of its population to the urban and coastal areas, because of recurrent droughts and a long civil war in the hinterlands. This has resulted in adverse environmental consequences. The coastal and surface waters are polluted. The country also has desertification. The elephant population is threatened by poaching for ivory.
