High rates of urbanisation and economic growth in Maputo have improved climate resilience in the central and wealthiest parts of the city, while providing little benefit to overcrowded and flood-prone informal areas. This analysis shows that unless sustained economic growth is captured, channelled and translated into suitable pro-poor programmes, it will not automatically contribute towards increasing poor people’s adaptive capacity.
