Key findings

• Due to the trajectory of the cyclone Idai, population density, and coastal location, shelter and infrastructure damage in Beira was significant, with the overwhelming majority of surveyed locations reporting houses either damaged or destroyed.

• The deterioration of WASH facilities is of concern, especially for displaced populations and the high number of people living in informal settlements.

03 May 2019 description

Key findings

• Due to lack of adequate water and sanitation infrastructure pre-Idai, WASH needs have been exacerbated after the cyclone. The long distances to cover to access water are exposing the population (women in particular) to protection risks.

03 May 2019 description

Key findings

• Difficult access to health facilities and the presence of malaria, AWD, acute respiratory diseases and malnutrition makes health needs a priority.

• Shelter is a priority. Those not having access to adequate temporary shelter are more exposed to poor sanitation practices and protection issues.

• The overlapping of poor sanitation and presence of disease put some locations particularly at risk, like Inhamitanga-Sede, who appear to be among the more vulnerable.

report GeoPoll

By Nick Becker

In order to support the humanitarian response following Cyclone Idai in Mozambique, Malawi, and Zimbabwe, GeoPoll has deployed a remote, SMS-based survey to the regions hardest hit in Mozambique to gather on-the-ground data on infrastructure damages, food security, and the aid needed most by communities.
