Plot Summary Mozambique has the second largest mangrove area in Africa, but the unsustainable resource exploitation is causing it serious damages that might become irreversible.
Mozambique has the second largest mangrove area in Africa, but the unsustainable resource exploitation is causing it serious damages that might become, with time, irreversible. With more and more cyclones each year, we must try to understand now the role played by these suspended forests in mitigation of climate changes, and how to preserve them without compromising the communities’ subsistence. Mahid makes his living thanks to the resources collected from the mangroves for at least fifteen years. And, like him, other people in the community depend on the the wood and the wildlife that live around them to subsist. With the strong increase of population in the neighboring cities, and the lack of employment, more and more people are coming from outside to extract large quantities of stakes for reselling. And Mahid, who just need to cross the river, in the past, now has to walk much farther to manage to feed his 11 children.
