The University of Notre Dame Initiative for Global Development (NDIGD) and the Notre Dame Global Adaptation Index (ND-GAIN) will work with faculty and staff from the Universidade Católica de Moçambique (UCM) to assess the impacts of early-warning systems for climate-related disasters in Mozambique.
