Mozambique is a country with an abundance of biodiversity, and it has in the most recent past, been on a relatively good economic growth trajectory. Forest, wildlife, freshwater and marine resources provide important socio-economic benefits to communities and the nation. The recent finding of substantial reserves of oil and natural gas offer even more greater prospects, with Mozambique poised to become the World’s third largest natural gas exporter by 2023 (UNEP, 2018). However, this impressive development progress means that Mozambique’s natural assets are under extreme pressure, leading to natural resource degradation and biodiversity loss. With 69% of the population relying on livelihoods that are natural resource dependent (INE, 2012), the pressure is expected to increase unless conservation is core to the country’s development pathway.
