Needs

  • The ongoing second phase of households’ verification commenced on 18 May at the remaining resettlement sites, which host about 55,000 people, of Sofala Province. Currently, the teams are verifying in Nhamatanda District, at the CURA resettlement site, and Dondo District, Mandruzi resettlement site 2.

  • CCCM is conducting an evaluation at the different resettlement sites in Buzi, Sofala Province. The objective of the assessment is to identify needs to improve the living conditions of resettlement sites.

  • In Cabo Delgado, displacement has risen rapidly as violence has escalated, with 211,485 people now estimated to be internally displaced in the province, according to IOM. Moreover, as a result of the recent attacks in the province, a growing caseload of internally displaced people (IDP) has been recently reported in the neighbouring Nampula and Niassa Province. The majority of IDPs are children and women. Food and shelter/non-food items (NFIs) and livelihood remain the most-needed assistance for IDPs, according to an assessment conducted in May 2020. While there are settlements and accommodation centres, the majority of IDPs are being hosted by families and relatives.

Gaps

  • In Cabo Delgado, the access limitations due to insecurity are significantly hampering the operations. ETT exercise was stopped in Mocimboa da Praia and Muidumbe District due to security concerns.

  • Funding gaps limiting capacities to conduct the full points of entry assessment in Southern and Northern areas of the country as part of the COVID-19 planning.
