On 4 May a truce between Renamo (Mozambique National Resistance) and Frelimo (Mozambique Liberation Front) was extended indefinitely and opposition leader Afonso Dhlakama stated that it signalled the beginning of the end of the war. INFORM measures Mozambique’s risk of humanitarian crisis and disaster to be high, at 6/10. Mozambique’s lack of coping capacity is of particular concern, at 6.7/10.

Mozambique was categorised as No Severity in June 2017, as the food security situation improved and is expected to continue to improve in  the coming months. The nutritional situation has also improved. The crisis analysis will no longer be updated, but ACAPS continues to monitor Mozambique on a weekly basis, due to its vulnerability to food insecurity.
