Prefácio

Desenvolvimento é uma essência preciosa, normalmente semeada com dedicação e adubada pela troca de vivências, conhecimentos, técnicas e descobertas. Seus frutos podem ser tão mais diversos, coloridos e saborosos quanto mais generosa e sincera tenha sido a distribuição de suas mudas e sementes e o compartilhamento dos segredos de sua lavoura.

Resilientes mulheres de Sihane

O distrito de Sihane, na província Moçambicana de Inhambane foi selecionado para este projecto devido a uma série de mudanças climáticas.

A encurtar o caminho para o desenvolvimento regional

Visando assim a circulação de pessoas e bens e o escoamento de excedentes agrícolas, impulsionando assim a economia. Apesar de tanto benefício, a reabilitação trouxe novos desafios, em particular para a sustentabilidade ambiental e a segurança no trânsito.
