SYPNOPSIS
Few countries are as destitute as Mozambique. More than three-quarters of its population earn less than $2 per day. Its infant mortality is 15 times that of the United Sates. It ranks 154th in per capita gross national product. Mozambique is also plagued with erratic rainfall, complicating agriculture. Computer climate models predict that global warming will cause drier conditions there during each year’s dry season and more intense floods, changes that will make life for Mozambique’s largely rural population even tougher.
