Overview

28/01/2021

Mozambique is experiencing the lasting effects of extreme climate, weather conditions and ongoing conflict. Most of southern Mozambique is facing drought like conditions for the third consecutive year, coupled with above-average rainfall resulting in a 70% decrease in average crop production. Current food prices are also above average.? 

In Cabo Delgado, continued violence has impacted food insecurity with thousands displaced unable to access their typical livelihood activities. The total number of people facing Crisis food insecurity (IPC Phase 3+) is 665,580, almost 30% of the population, with access and information gaps severely impacting a proper assessment.?

2.9 million people will face Crisis and above levels of food insecurity (IPC 3+) in January-March 2021. This is an increase from the period October-December 2020, with 2.7 million in IPC 3+. Insecurity as a result of conflict in Cabo Delgado province, poor basic infrastructure, and the impact of natural hazards are challenging access to those in need of assistance.?
