University of Notre Dame Report on Catholic Mission - 2014

Which countries will be the most affected? The ones that have contributed the least to altering the planet.

The Notre Dame Initiative for Global Development (NDIGD) and the Notre Dame Global Adaptation Index (ND-GAIN) will work with faculty and staff from the Universidade Católica de Moçambique (UCM) to assess the impacts of early-warning systems for climate-related disasters in the country of Mozambique.

Mozambique is densely populated and located in low-lying coastal and river zones, making it extremely susceptible to natural disasters and climate change including cyclones, storms, and floods. The creation of Community-based Disaster Management Committees (CLGRCs) and decentralized early-warning systems are being created to cope with climate risks. Notre Dame will help to evaluate the success of programs established by aid from the German government.
