PREFACE

The current ActionAid Southern Africa Partnership (SAAP- Zimbabwe) - Zimbabwe Operation Murambatsvina/Restore Order National Survey Report is one of several processes to assess the impact of the Operation since commencement of the operation on 18 May 2005 and enhance the National information base. ActionAid International Southern African Partnership Programme - Zimbabwe was responsible for conducting this study. The study on the impact of Operation Murambatsvina/Restore Order was conducted in collaboration with Combined Harare Resident's Association and the Zimbabwe Peace Project. The report details how the Operation impacted on the lives of millions of Zimbabweans as a result of GoZ actions. Furthermore it explores who were most affected and the type of assistance that is required and where this assistance needs to be channelled. Primary research was carried out to characterise the impact of Operation Murambatsvina/Restore Order. This report builds on the UN Special Envoys Fact finding mission by providing primary data, analysis and perspectives from affected people.

It is hoped that this Report will help in highlighting the humanitarian priorities and current response gaps and ultimately trigger meaningful support for affected families for all actors. This report intends to further build on the national data sets available on the impact of the Operation on affected families. It take into cognition other assessments carried out in the country by civil society and the UNCT and is a complementary process. This report is generally an advocacy tool to remind the nation and the international community of its humanitarian and developmental priorities as well as to alert the nation and other stakeholders of the emerging challenges.
