Provincial Union of Farmers in Cabo Delgado - UPCD

Provincial Union of Farmers in Cabo Delgado - UPCD was formally approved in 2007, but its history goes back to 2002. UPCD is well recognized for its role in building the farmers' movement. Since the Cabo Delgado Province is bordering the Niassa province, it is also partly covered by forest. The majority of the population are fishermen, smallholders, farmers that only produce enough for their own consumption, or operate dry and wetland agriculture. Development plans for business, such as accentuation of monocultures, is a potential risk for the ecosystem and people's access to land and livelihood.
