Carbon traders want access to 1/3 of Mozambique under REDD+, but MICOA says no
Carbon trading companies have applied for rights over one-third of Mozambique, to sell carbon credits generated by emissions reductions caused by reduced deforestation. But the Ministry of Environment (MICOA) is resisting pressure from companies, the Council of Ministers, and the World Bank to speed the process.

EU observers criticise elections
The 28 October elections were well organised and peaceful and largely guaranteed universal suffrage, reports the European Union Election Observation Mission. Fundamental freedoms and rights of assembly, expression and movement were respected.

Despite this, the broader electoral process was weakened by the lack of transparency by Mozambique’s electoral authorities, by an unlevel playing field during the electoral campaign and by limitations with regard to voter choice at local level. As in 2004, irregularities in counting, tabulation and aggregation were observed.

The EU Observer Mission also found:
+ Electoral "legislation is unclear and at times contradictory."
+ "Filing a complaint is de facto nearly impossible at every step of the electoral process."
+ "The presence of political party representatives at CNE maintains an unlevel playing field and an unequal access to information."
