Mozambique is exposed to extreme climatic conditions and hazards such as cyclones, storms, and flash floods. Drought also occurs, primarily in the southern region. The recurrence of these events has had detrimental effects on food security and nutrition. Climatic prediction for the 2018-2019 rainy season indicates normal to below normal rainfall for the southern and central regions, and normal to above normal rainfall for the northern part. ? An estimated 2 million people are severely food insecure (IPC 3 and above), including some 800,000 in need of lifesaving assistance. The most affected provinces are Gaza, Cabo Delgado, Inhambane, Sofala and Tete. ?The impact of Cyclones Idai and Kenneth in the central and northern provinces of Mozambique will further deteriorate food security in the long term in these areas due to loss of crops just before harvest.
