Significant improvements in food security expected across the region
Imagine living in a world where it’s too expensive to eat. I don’t mean a night out at a restaurant or missing the occasional pastry. I mean when it’s too expensive to keep good nutritious food on the table. That’s what’s happening in the part of Africa where I live.
A nutritious balanced diet is out of reach for many, and a lot of people eat only once or twice a day.
For much of the last year, more than 20 million people here were dependent on food assistance; they make up half of the 40 million Africans affected by the worst drought in 35 years.

This Strategic Plan for the period 2016 - 2018 outlines Iceland's strategy for development cooperation with Mozambique and defines the basis for support.
With the harvest now taking place countrywide, greater food availability has led to Stressed (IPC Phase 2) outcomes in southern and central areas, which is expected to improve to Minimal (IPC Phase 1) in June. However, it is still likely that localized poor households in areas directly impacted by the armed conflict, flooding/cyclone events or erratic rainfall in parts of the central region’s semiarid zone may face Stressed (IPC Phase 2) or Crisis (IPC Phase 3) through September and require targeted humanitarian assistance.
Switzerland - 2015 was the year of hope for the global migration and humanitarian communities.
That year, we saw the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development call for effective measures and strengthened support to empower displaced people and migrants as part of a broader commitment “to leave no one behind”. This was important progress on the Millennium Development Goals which had nothing to say about migration, let alone the contribution it can make to resilience or sustainable development.

Mixed migration flows within, from and to the East Africa and Yemen region continued to be affected by a number of complex dynamics, including conflict, drought and economic reasons among others. Migrants, asylum seekers and refugees continued to be at a significant risk of harm, ranging from abduction, physical abuse and death on land and at sea. Policy considerations remained focussed on limiting irregular migration, particularly to Europe.
