Mozambique, with an estimated population of 25.8 million people, is classified as a low-income, food-deficit country, ranked 180 out of 188 countries on the Human Development Index. Mozambique is one of the most disaster-prone countries in the world; while the southern and central regions regularly experience droughts, floods occur every two to three years along the major river basins and poorly drained urban settlements. The regularity of these events perpetuates a cycle of vulnerability and emphasize the need for adequate disaster preparedness, prevention and management. Two decades ago, Mozambique was one of the most impoverished and capacity-constrained country in the world. Over the past decade, Mozambique has ranked amongst the top the fastest growing economies in the world, however strong and steady economic growth has not been translated into proportionate reduction of poverty.
The overall objective of WFP in Mozambique is to support the government in achieving the sustainable Development Goal 2 (SDG2 – End Hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture). Based on national development priorities, WFP Country Strategic Plan (CSP) 2017-2021 aims to support long-term recovery and resilience and contribute to addressing the underlying causes of food insecurity and malnutrition in Mozambique. In line with its corporate strategy, WFP Mozambique strives to meet the needs of the 1 million beneficiaries it serves with the most effective support, be it in-kind food, cash, vouchers or a combination of all three.ABOUT WFP
