  • Crisis—IPC 3—acute food insecurity conditions persist in some coastal areas of Cabo Delgado Province, while conditions in storm-affected coastal areas of central Nampula Province will likely deteriorate to Crisis levels in June, according to FEWS NET. Moreover, populations across much of southern Mozambique—where below-average rainfall and dry spells have led to poor or failed harvests—are also likely to face Crisis conditions by June.

  • The Government of the Republic of Mozambique’s (GRM’s) National Institute for Disaster Management (INGD) estimates that high winds, torrential rains, and flooding adversely affected more than 1 million people in Mozambique over the course of the October 2021-to-April 2022 rain and cyclone season.

  • Relief actors have expressed concern for unregistered displaced populations in northern Mozambique, estimating that as many as 1 million people may be displaced by the Cabo Delgado conflict.
