The Republic of Mozambique is a nation rich in natural resources, with roughly 23% of its area under environmental protection. The BIOFUND Support program, financed by the KfW, is a partnership between Funbio and the consultancies GITEC (Germany) and Verde Azul (Mozambique) intended to help the Biodiversity Conservation Foundation of Mozambique (BIOFUND) hone its internal financial procedures.
The initiative kicked off in June 2016, with Funbio supporting the drafting and implementation of project selection, execution and reporting processes. In addition, Funbio organized a training program on financial operations for 20 participants involved in protected-area management in Mozambique.
