Progress in 2013:

A call for funds took place  in October, but no funds were received for 2013. In December the donor informed that the last instalment of approximately USD 1,700,000 could not  be disbursed due to the fact that the progress report for  May - October 2012 did not make an evaluation of outputs and indicators against a baseline.  the project document. In order to respond to donor´s concerns   the baseline study that was done at the beginning of the project in 2006 (previous phases of projects GCP/MOZ/027/BEL and GCP/MOZ/079/BEL) was re-visited and  additional data was collected in the districts covered by the project. With this information the last progress report was revised and some indicators were compared to the baseline, as requested.  This new revised report, that shows achievements from the beginning of the project´s consolidation phase against the baseline was  duly cleared by the project TBOs,  Karel Callens and Joyce Mulita Mitti, and submitted to the donor in April 2013.

So far the following was achieved:

  • From 25 February to 2 March  two courses of Trainings  of Trainers (TOT)  were conducted at the same time in Gorongosa and Chimoio involving 60 farmers (50 men and 10 women) from Caia, Gorongosa and Gondola districts.
  • A training course in Monitoring and Evaluation was conducted in March  involving 12 district focal points from Agriculture, Health and Education sectors. This training course envisages the harmonisation of the existing M&E system among the district sectors from Caia, Gorongosa, Gondola and Macossa.  
  • From 22 to 26 April, in Caia District, 30 members of Natural Resources Committees (NRC ) were trained in Sustainable Management of Natural Resources and Legal Procedures.  This training involved an expert from the  Department of Tourism of Manica Province.

GCP/MOZ/100/GFF – Disposal of Persistent Organic Pesticides (POPs) and Obsolete Pesticides in Mozambique (EOD: March 2011 - NTE: February 2014)

GCP/MOZ/100/GFF – Disposal of Persistent Organic Pesticides (POPs) and Obsolete Pesticides in Mozambique (EOD: March 2011 - NTE: February 2014)

This project is a follow up of 3 previous projects, all funded by the Government of Japan. The targeted impact of this project is to reduce the risk to public health and the environment posed by poor pesticide and obsolete pesticide management. The risk reduction will be quantified using a project specific M&E system based on risk identification and characterization to establish a national risk profile or risk baseline before, during and after project implementation.

The project has 3 components: 1) Disposal of buried pesticides, contaminated soils and contaminated containers; 2) Improved pesticide life cycle management; 3) Project management and M&E.   

Activities started in August 2011 with the establishment of a Program Management Unit (PMU)  composed of a National Coordinator and a National Environment Manager,  based at the Plant Protection Department of MINAG. A  Steering Committee (SC) was  created and an NGO  identified to work as National Observer and to acess the impact of the project to the comunities.

AGPM (Mark Davis) is the BH of this project.

From August to December 2011 the following activites were carried out:

  • A preliminary assessment of the soils suspected of having been contaminated with pesticides;
  • PMU staff trained on the Pesticides Stocks Management (PSMS) and M&E;
  • Formulation of practical guidelines for the implementation of the regulations on pesticides management.
  • Contracting of National Observer NGO and training on project impact assessment at community level;
  • Procurement of material and equipment’s for the intrusive site investigation;
  • Contracting of National and International Consultants to elaborate the Pesticide Management Guidelines that will support the legislation

 In 2012, the following activities were carried out:

  • Intrusive Investigation of 15 contaminated sites to assess the contaminated. This included 34 samples of superficial soils to assess how deep the contaminant went. With the results from the preliminary analysis mentioned above, a Rapid Environmental Assessment (REA) was elaborated and sites ranked in terms of the risk levels. This formed a basis for the designing of a strategy for mitigation of the problem and disposal of the heavy contaminated soils by an international contractor.
  • A site visit to the central stores was conducted in order to assess the situation of the containers of pesticides collected and centralized during the previous phases of the project.
  • The  revision and updating of the Hazardous Waste Regulation started.
  • A PSMS training was conducted for the Project Management Unit (PMU) staff in Johannesburg. This training covered not only the Mozambican staff but other staff from countries where similar projects are being implemented.
  • The project contracted a consultant to develop an impact monitoring system and to train a national NGO who will conduct the impact study.
  • A baseline study was conducted to access  the degree of knowledge of the population about the activities of the project.
  • Guidelines for the management of pesticides to support pesticide legislation were prepared.
  • Preparation of a study tour to Brazil on pesticide empty container management.

In  the first quarter of 2013, the following activities were carried out:

  • From 2 to 10 March, 3 representatives from different government institutions, the national project coordinator and the TBO  participated in a study tour to Brazil  on pesticide empty container management.
  • A workshop to improve the draft document on Guidelines for the Management of Pesticides to support pesticide legislation was organized and  was attended by 35 technicians from different provinces and institutions.
  • Draft ToRs for the revision of  the legislation on Hazardous Waste was prepared.
