Food Security Situation in Mozambique - HRP 2022
Estimated 1.5 million people in need of urgent humanitarian assistance and protection in 2022.
In November 2021, more than 784,000 people were estimated as internally displaced in Mozambique due to the conflict in Cabo Delgado, approximately 703,000 people in Cabo Delgado, 77,000 in Nampula, 4,000 in Niassa and 1,200 in Zambezia according to IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) Baseline Assessment Round 15.
Food insecurity is rising as conflict and repeated displacement, compounded by climatic shocks (Tropical storm), have disrupted communities’ agricultural activities and livelihoods. More than 1.1 million people in Cabo Delgado, Niassa and Nampula are now facing Crisis or Emergency levels of food insecurity (IPC Phase 3 or +), while disruption of markets due to insecurity has driven up the cost of food and household item.
