    According to the latest Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) analysis, nearly 1.9 million people are experiencing high levels of acute food insecurity (IPC Phase 3 or above) in Mozambique, including almost 40 000 people in emergency (IPC Phase 4). About 71 percent (1.3 million people) of these people are in four provinces: Cabo Delgado, Niassa, Nampula and Zambézia. The main cause of food insecurity is the ongoing conflict in Cabo Delgado and its spillover effects. The number of people displaced by the crisis has risen sharply from 110 000 in March 2021 to over 820 000 in December 2021, according to government estimates. Other key drivers include: the shortage of rainfall or irregular rains in parts of Gaza, Inhambane, Manica, Maputo, Nampula and Tete provinces; increasing food prices; and the impact of necessary restrictive measures to confine the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. FAO continues to take a leadership role in the agriculture livelihood response across Mozambique, including in the most remote areas in the north. This includes investing in the agriculture sector (crops, fisheries, livestock and forestry) to restore livelihoods and enhance food security and nutrition for the most vulnerable internally displaced people (IDP) and host community populations. The timely provision of seeds, tools and technical assistance and planting of crops produces enough nutritious food to guarantee self-sufficiency for three to six months for an average household of five. This document provides an overview of FAO's humanitarian response in Mozambique in 2021 and outlines key priorities for 2022.

    The humanitarian crisis in Northern Mozambique has rapidly escalated, leaving an estimated 1.3 million people in need of urgent humanitarian assistance and protection in 2021. The main shocks leading to the deteriorating humanitarian and food security situation are armed conflict, natural hazards and the impact of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic on economic activity in the region. These shocks have disrupted the agricultural livelihoods of vulnerable people in Cabo Delgado, Nampula and Niassa and heightened food insecurity. Providing timely support along the seasonal calendar will help maximize gains and enhance production, benefiting communities most at need.

    Emergency Assistance for Vulnerable Internally Displaced People and Host Communities in Northeast Nigeria - TCP/NIR/3602 2019
    Also available in:

    The insurgency in northeastern Nigeria caused a massive loss of civilian lives and triggered a protracted humanitarian crisis that has lasted for nine years. According to the International Organization for Migration Displacement Tracking Matrix, some 1.8 million people were forcibly displaced from their homes as a result, the majority of whom reside in formal and informal camps in host community settings. Agriculture is the main source of food and income for over 80 percent of the population, but livelihoods were severely affected by livestock losses, reduced access to fishing grounds and arable land, and the disruption of extension services. Against this background, the project aimed to improve agricultural production for recent most vulnerable internally displaced people (IDPs) and their host communities in the northeast states of Adamawa and Yobe.
