Mozambique: Multi-sector Response to Crisis-Affected Populations in Northern Mozambique – MOZ928

Mozambique faces diverse challenges that have created a complex humanitarian crisis for which the country is under-resourced and under-equipped. These challenges include intensifying security threats by non-state armed groups, the COVID-19 pandemic, vulnerability to climate change and natural disasters, and the 2016-2017 debt crisis, leading to continued displacement, increased protection risks, and disruption to markets and livelihoods. Most recently, these challenges have been heightened by the devastation caused by Cyclone Gombe in the country’s northern provinces.

Overall Objective

Save lives and alleviate suffering through safe, equitable, gender-sensitive, and principled intersectoral assistance to the most vulnerable groups, including those displaced, directly impacted host communities and non-displaced populations.

Specific Objective

Critical, needs-based, gender- and age-responsive humanitarian assistance is provided to displacement- and conflict-affected households in hard-to-reach locations and displacement sites in Northern Mozambique.

Expected Results

ER1: Shelter needs of IDPs/conflict-affected HHs in hard-to-reach areas and resettlement sites are addressed in a gender-sensitive and inclusive way.

ER 2: WASH needs of IDPs/conflict-affected HHs in hard-to-reach areas and resettlement sites are addressed in a gender-sensitive and inclusive way.

ER 3: INGD and humanitarian partners are better able to rapidly respond to the urgent material needs of emergency-affected people across Mozambique.

ER 4: Enhanced capacity to rapidly respond to emerging shocks occurring in northern Mozambique through access to a crisis modifier

ER 5: Shelter needs of vulnerable households in cyclone Gombe impacted areas are addressed in a gender-sensitive and inclusive way

ER 6: WASH needs of vulnerable households in cyclone Gombe impacted areas are addressed in a gender-sensitive and inclusive way.
