    The crisis in northern Mozambique has rapidly deteriorated owing to conflict, insecurity and violence, leading to significant displacement, disruption of livelihoods and lack of access to basic services. The violence has escalated since January 2020 with reports of attacks by non-state armed groups expanding geographically at increased intensity. The conflict is worsening food and nutrition insecurity in the region, where communities are yet to recover from the impacts of Cyclone Kenneth that landed in April 2019. About 90 percent of the IDPs are residing with host communities, while the remainder have been relocated to sites that still do not have adequate basic facilities and services. While agriculture was the main livelihood of the IDPs before their lives were disrupted by the conflict, it is crucial that, from the outset, appropriate measures are in place to ensure IDPs and their host communities produce adequate healthy food, while sustainably managing their land, water, forestry and fish resources. It is within this context that FAO launched the ALRP for northern Mozambique for 2021-2023. The funding appeal of USD 45 million has the overall aim to immediately enhance the food and nutrition security of 100 000 households of the IDPs and host communities affected by conflict, while laying the foundation to sustainably build resilient livelihoods against future climatic shocks and stressors. Support provided to the IDP and host communities will ensure they resume local crop production, fishing and livestock-rearing activities, while sustainably managing soil, forest and fish resources.

    A joint FAO/WFP update for the members of the United Nations Security Council – ​April 2021. Issue no. 8

    This is the eighth update of the Monitoring Food Security in Countries with Conflict Situations, a twice‑yearly report on acute food insecurity in countries affected by conflict that the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Food Programme (WFP) have jointly produced for the members of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) since June 2016. This issue provides an update of the acute food insecurity situation in major food crises where conflict and insecurity are a primary driver of acute food insecurity. It also briefly describes other key food insecurity drivers (including indirect impacts from the coronavirus disease 2019 [COVID-19]), and how conflict and insecurity frequently interlink with – and sometimes exacerbate – them. The present update covers nineteen countries and territories that are experiencing extremely grave hunger caused by protracted conflict and insecurity as reported in the 2020 Global Report on Food Crises (GRFC). The update also spotlights the situation in Burkina Faso, northern Nigeria and South Sudan where there have been sharp conflict‑related increases in acute food insecurity, flagging where constraints on humanitarian access to food insecure populations have been documented and there is evidence of conflict‑specific food system damage.

    Access to food for rural and urban consumers is affected by high wheat and rice prices. Insecurity caused by Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) continues and the government is cooperating with Mali to defeat the militias. Food security situation is improving; however food prices are very high and limit economic access. The government has implemented agricultural policies to support producers in farming activities.
