    In 2020, Mozambique had an estimated population of around 29.5 million, with two-thirds living in rural areas. The agricultural sector employed 75 percent of the population, highlighting the heavy reliance of Mozambicans on natural resource-based activities such as rainfed agriculture for their livelihoods. Fragmented, inefficient, and fragile food systems in Mozambique, compounded by susceptibility to various shocks and stressors like weather events, pandemics, and conflict, have led to an inability to adequately address the food and nutritional requirements of the expanding population, thereby negatively affecting food security, nutrition, and the overall economy. This challenge is exacerbated by the limited coping mechanisms and resilience capacity of affected communities, alongside pre-existing social and economic inequalities. The agribusiness sector's competitiveness is weakened by underlying factors, resulting in its potential being largely untapped and hindered by disorganized, informal, and inefficient value chains, inadequate farm investment, low production and productivity, and minimal value addition, necessitating support for the development of an inclusive and robust agribusiness sector.

    Strengthening food security and acute malnutrition analysis for improved decision making

    After more than five years of protracted conflict, Yemen continues to face an unprecedented humanitarian, social and economic crisis. Conflict, displacement and economic decline are placing immense pressure on essential basic services and the institutions that provide them. Humanitarian needs have sharply increased across all sectors since the escalation of the conflict in 2015, which has exacerbated pre-existing vulnerabilities, degraded community resilience and accelerated the collapse of public institutions. Due to the need for reliable and timely food security and nutrition information to inform decision-making at the national and governorate levels, FAO and the Yemeni Government, with support from the European Union (EU), implemented a comprehensive information system approach with two initial phases between 2013 and 2020. This promising practice brief focuses on the third phase of this programme called “Strengthening food security and nutrition information and early warning system” (2019-2021). It is a two-year EUR 5.9 million programme aimed at scaling up the geographic coverage of the food security and nutrition information systems (FSNIS) in Yemen. The programme addresses the main challenges associated with food security and nutrition information collection, analysis, and management systems in the country by supporting the setting up of a sustainable Food Security Technical Secretariat (FSTS) and food security and nutrition Governorate Focal Units (GFUs). The third phase focuses on expanding the program coverage from 12 governorates to all 22 governorates of Yemen.

    Angola’s National Development Plan (NDP) for 2018–2022 identifies the agricultural, forestry and fishery sector as a key driver for economic and social development, aligning with an import substitution model. Despite its significance, the sector faces a structural challenge due to a lack of reliable data for monitoring key indicators. Target 2.3.2 of the NDP prioritizes the establishment of the National Integrated System for Agricultural Statistics. Presently, the Office of Planning, Studies and Statistics (GEPE) at MINAGRIF leads the Agricultural Statistics Information System, relying on two surveys per year with basic data. However, three structural constraints impede the development of robust data: a) a shortage of trained human resources, as the statistical staff lacks a relevant academic background; b) insufficient economic resources, hindering data collection and analysis; and c) a scarcity of technological resources, with outdated equipment and the absence of data processing software. These constraints affect all stages of the Data Value Chain for Agricultural Statistics (DVCAS).
