Mozambique

Almost twice the size of California, Mozambique forms a long, narrow strip on the south-eastern coast of Africa, bordering the Indian Ocean. The climate ranges from tropical to sub-tropical. Crops include rice, cashews, and coconuts in the south and tea and cotton in the north. Mining is becoming important, as are timber crops of ebony, mahogany, teak, sandalwood, and ironwood.

One of the poorest countries in Africa, Mozambique is home to about 18 million people; over 40% are under the age of 15. 70% live below the poverty level and life expectancy at birth is only 31 years.
