    Strengthening Capacities of Farmers to Cope With Climate Change in Mozambique - GCP/MOZ/112/LDF 2022
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    In recent decades, climate change has increasingly impacted Mozambique, in particular the lives of smallholder farmers who are highly dependent on natural resources. Over the past decade, Mozambique has developed a comprehensive framework of laws, policies, strategies, programmes and action plans addressing rural development, adaptation to climate change and the agricultural sector. However, a number of challenges remain to ensure that climate change adaptation (CCA) is fully mainstreamed and integrated into the agricultural sector. The aim of the project was to enhance the capacity of the country’s agricultural and pastoral sectors to cope with climate change by scaling up the adoption by farmers of CCA technologies and practices through a network of already established farmer field schools (FFS), and by mainstreaming CCA concerns and strategies into agricultural development initiatives, policies and programming.

    Mozambique | Revised humanitarian response (May–December 2020)
    Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)

    Prior to the World Health Organization’s (WHO’s) declaration of COVID-19 as a pandemic in March 2020, 1.6 million people in Mozambique were already estimated to be facing acute food insecurity at crisis or worse levels (Integrated Food Security Phase Classification [IPC] Phase 3 and above). The country is directly exposed to the effects of COVID-19 on people’s lives and wellbeing, aggravated by a weak and overburdened health system and high levels of malnutrition. There are also serious indirect impacts on livelihoods, through disruptions to food supply chains and access to food, basic services and humanitarian assistance. In areas that are still recovering from two cyclones and recent drought and floods, any further disruption to food production and value chains could be catastrophic. More specifically, the Southern Region (currently affected by drought), Central Region (affected by Cyclone Idai last year), Cabo Delgado in the north (affected by Cyclone Kenneth, floods, conflict and internal displacement), and low-income urban/peri-urban populations across the country will be disproportionately affected by the pandemic. In the framework of FAO’s Corporate COVID-19 Response and Recovery Programme and the United Nations Global Humanitarian Response Plan for COVID-19, FAO has revised its humanitarian response for 2020 to mitigate the effects of the pandemic and address the needs of the most vulnerable households.

    Programme MDG1c: Reducing hunger in Mozambique
    Case study: Nutrition education and social behaviour change communication (SBCC)
    2020
    Also available in:

    The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and World Food Programme (WFP) co-managed the final evaluation of the joint programme “Accelerate Progress towards Millennium Development Goal 1C in Mozambique” in partnership with the European Union Delegation. The evaluation ensured a participatory process. In addition to having a management group, it counted on a reference group formed by the programme task force and national counterparts. This was fundamental to address the challenges arisen from this exercise and to cope with the delays caused by the cyclones Idai and Kenneth in an ethical manner. As a result of this joint and collaborative exercise completed in 2020, four case studies were produced to document and disseminate good practices with potential to contribute to the achievement of SDG2; i.e. i) reducing food insecurity and malnutrition through a multisector approach, ii) nutrition education and social behaviour change communication, iii) e-vouchers, and iv) farmer field schools.
