The United Nations World Food Programme is the world's largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. The mission of WFP is to help the world achieve Zero Hunger in our lifetimes. Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need.

Since 2015, Mozambique has endured crippling fiscal downturns and a devastating increase in poverty. The nation enters the United Nations Decade of Action on delivering the Sustainable Development Goals facing recurring climate shocks, continued violence and insecurity and amplified, persistent acute and chronic food and nutrition insecurity. Access to food remains a key concern in Mozambique; just over half of all households cannot afford a nutritious diet, and an average of 25 percent of households suffer from shock-affected acute food insecurity at least once a year, compounded by longer lean seasons caused by climate change.

Since 2017, armed conflict in Cabo Delgado – Mozambique’s poorest province in terms of multidimensional poverty – has escalated rapidly, compounding existing vulnerabilities and affecting more than 1.3 million people. The conflict in Cabo Delgado has led to the displacement of approximately 785,000 people and the disruption of livelihoods and access to basic services. Of the 1.7 million people facing high levels of food insecurity in Mozambique, 950,000 are in the northern provinces of Cabo Delgado, Niassa, Nampula and Zambezia. Focusing on the crisis in the north of Mozambique only, the humanitarian response plan for 2022 estimates that more than 1 million people are in need and sets the target for humanitarian food assistance at 941,000 individuals, consisting of internally displaced persons and approximately 20 percent of host families in affected provinces.

Demonstrating its ability to respond according to need at scale and with agility, WFP expanded life-saving food assistance in northern Mozambique from 30,000 internally displaced persons to 936,000 by September 2021. Under it’s new Country Strategic Plan (CSP) covering July 2022 – December 2026, aims to assist the country in arresting and reversing the deteriorating food security and nutrition situation of recent years.

WFP will apply appropriate, risk-informed resilience-building approaches across the triple (humanitarian–development–peace) nexus, saving lives in emergencies while changing lives by assisting populations to adapt and improve their livelihoods and better withstand recurring shocks. The CSPs, Strategic outcome 1 aims to save lives and protect the food security and nutrition status of vulnerable people and communities affected by shocks and strengthen essential health and nutrition service delivery while leveraging opportunities to initiate resilience building and self-reliance activities.
