Maize, rice, and cowpeas are the most important food commodities for poor. Maize is the staple food for the poor, with rice most often used as a substitute. Among beans, cowpeas are the most important to poor groups. Each of the markets represented here act as indicators for the broader region. Tete is representative for the province by the same name, Nampula is the main market in the north and is representative for the region, and has linkages with the interior of Zambezia and Nampula provinces and coastal Nampula.
The Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWS NET) monitors trends in staple food prices in countries vulnerable to food insecurity. For each FEWS NET country and region, the Price Bulletin provides a set of charts showing monthly prices in the current marketing year in selected urban centers and allowing users to compare current trends with both five-year average prices, indicative of seasonal trends, and prices in the previous year.

Mozambique - IOM, UNICEF and Mozambique’s National Institute for Disaster Management (INGC) yesterday (27/08) convened a workshop, attended by 35 government officials and NGO representatives, to revise the current system of assessing humanitarian needs in emergencies.
As one of the world’s most vulnerable countries to climate change and environmental hazards, Mozambique faces major humanitarian crises almost every year in the form of extreme floods and cyclones.
The final evaluation covers WFP's country programme (CP) 200286 (2012-2015). It was intended for both accountability and learning purposes and focuses on assessing:
Agency Reports and Open Source Data
Most of our knowledge about humanitarian security hot spots comes from publicly-reported events. This briefing summarizes confidential information from 10 agencies about a range of security events, from those that severely affect staff to those that affect agencies’ ability to deliver aid.

First the floods came, then the cholera but neither have stopped the local church saving lives in Mozambique.
Heavy rains in January left a huge swathe of the country under several feet of water, killing 158 people and affecting 160,000 others, with 50,000 being made homeless.
But training by Tearfund partner Codesa to make local churches more outward-looking and focused on people’s physical needs as well as their spiritual ones, has proved invaluable in limiting the suffering of survivors.
Summary of WFP assistance: In Mozambique, WFP implements a Country Programme, a Protracted Relief and Recovery Operation and a Special Operation. WFP also implements a Bilateral Agreement designed to provide procurement and logistics services in support of the Nutrition Rehabilitation Programme established by the Government of Mozambique.

PROJECTED FOOD ASSISTANCE NEEDS FOR FEBRUARY 2016
Communities were the first responders to HIV three decades ago, and they remain essential in advocating for a robust response to the epidemic, delivering services that can reach everyone in need and tackling HIV-related stigma and discrimination. Working alongside public health and other systems, community responses are critical to the success and sustainability of the global response to HIV.
Displaced families in Mozambique’s Zambezia Province continue to search for stability after severe flooding in early 2015 caused mass evacuations in low-lying areas of the region. After coordinating initial relief operations, the Government of Mozambique has shifted its focus to the recovery phase of the emergency through the development of relocation communities housing internally displaced persons (IDP) throughout the province.

BLANTYRE—Hundreds of Mozambicans have fled into Malawi because of fighting between government forces and the opposition party RENAMO. Many of the displaced people are resisting being relocated to a refugee camp.
The Mozambicans started entering Malawi in early July after RENAMO fighters carried out two attacks in Tete province.
RENAMO disputes the result of last year's elections and wants autonomy in northern Mozambique, where it has the most support.
1 Introduction and methodology
1.1 Introduction to the research
In September 2013, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) contracted Oxford Policy Management and the University of East Anglia to conduct Strategic Research into National and Local Capacity Building for Disaster Risk Management.
Smallholder farmers, and particularly women, are on the frontline in the fight against hunger and climate change in southern Africa. Unequal access to resources, poor access to finance and limited linkages to markets to sell their produce impose critical constraints, and food insecurity and poverty are the direct outcomes of this failure. In countries such as Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique, between a quarter and half of the population are classified as being chronically undernourished.
Regional maize supplies in southern Africa are expected to be below average over the remainder of the 2015/16 marketing year (Figure 1). Every country in the region is expected to have a deficit , except South Africa, Zambia, and Tanzania , which will have below - average exportable surpluses. As regional maize production is not adequate to meet requirements , large and atypical supply gaps are likely .
