Corridor Ecosystem Is A Gold Mine
The presence of unique plants and animals along the Nacala corridor will have economic and environmental benefits to communities according to an ecological study which was instituted by Vale and CEAR.
According to the team that is carrying out the research, EnviroConsult, the presence of these unique plants and animals can attract tourists who would board CEAR trains for sightseeing expeditions. The area can also be attractive for investors to open lodges and animal parks which can only result in new business and employment opportunities for people in communities along the line well as increased movement of cargo and people on CEAR trains. This study is part of CEAR’s environmental obligations as stated in the Nacala Corridor Concession Agreement.
