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.

Mozambique with an estimated population of 31.3 million people, is classified as a low-income, food-deficit country, ranked 181 out of 189 countries on the Human Development Index.
Mozambique is one of the most disaster-prone countries in the world. While the southern and central regions regularly experience droughts, floods occur every two to three years along the major river basins and in poorly drained urban settlements.

The regularity of these events perpetuates a cycle of vulnerability and emphasize the need for adequate disaster preparedness, mitigation, and response management. Two decades ago, Mozambique was one of the most impoverished and capacity-constrained country in the world.
Over the past decade, Mozambique has ranked amongst the top ten fastest growing economies in the world, however strong and steady economic growth has not been translated into a proportionate reduction of poverty.

The overall objective of WFP in Mozambique is to support the government in achieving the Sustainable Development Goal 2 (SDG2 – End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture).
In July 2022, WFP started a new cycle of a Country Strategic Plan (CSP, 2022-2026) in Mozambique. This second generation CSP consolidates WFP’s role as a technical advisor and positions WFP as an expert technical partner of choice in supporting national priorities and programmes in pursuit of the 2030 Agenda.
Under Strategic Outcome 4, supporting resilience building, WFP provides support to national and government actors to prepare for, respond to and recover from natural and man-made disasters.

WFP is supporting the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Action (MGCAS) in operationalizing the National Strategy for Basic Social Security (ENSSB II) 2016-2024. In a context of high vulnerability to climate change and natural disasters, WFP support is focused on strengthening government capacities to improve access to social protection (SP) for the population affected by natural shocks.
Thanks to its experience both in SP and humanitarian assistance, WFP is well placed to support MGCAS in making SP programmes more shock-responsive and foster harmonization between MGCAS and the National Institute for Disaster Management (INGD).

In parallel, WFP provides broader support to the Government in the overall disaster risk management cycle by supporting, among others, INGD in strengthening its work on emergency preparedness and disaster risk management (DRM).
In particular, under its Disaster Risk Financing activities, WFP is promoting sustainable ways to finance humanitarian response, including adaptive social protection schemes. In this context, WFP is supporting the Government in integrating innovative disaster risk financing mechanisms like Forecast-based Financing and sovereign insurance schemes in its programming, as well as supporting the Government in anticipating and mitigating disasters.

To provide effective coordination and specialized support to a full range of policy and programme activities that effectively meet food assistance needs.
