A literature review on climate vulnerability to summarize available information and identify the main knowledge gaps about this issue in these two areas

This assessment is a literature review on Climate Vulnerability in the Quirimbas National Park and Primeiras and Segundas Marine Reserve (Mozambique) that aims to summarize available information and identify the main knowledge gaps about this issue.

The final outcome of these reviews includes information on: i) trends in status of ecosystems, natural resources and natural resource-based livelihoods; ii) major development issues affecting the above; iii) climate trends and projections for the area; iv) vulnerability and resilience of ecosystems and livelihoods to climate change; iv) extent to which climate change adaptation is addressed in relevant (natural resources) management policies and strategies.

For this purpose, the project team searched available data, both in electronic and print formats and grey and scientific literature, namely: national and regional official reports, development strategy plans, management plans, MSc and PhD thesis, peer reviewed papers, among other documents.
