2020-08-28

It is only 6 years since the entry into force of the Law establishing the legal rules on disaster management (Law 15/2014 of 20 June). However, the Covid-19 pandemic has forced the approval by the Mozambican Parliament of Law 10/2020 of 24 August.

These rules cover risk reduction, disaster management, and sustainable recovery, to build human, infrastructural and ecosystem resilience, and adaptation to climate change (Legal Rules on Disaster Management and Risk Reduction).
