Context: From March to April 2019, Mozambique was struck by two tropical cyclones, Tropical Cyclone Idai and Tropical Cyclone Kenneth. The two cyclones affected an estimated 1.8 million in seven provinces and destroyed over 290,000 houses. In December 2020 and January 2021, other tropical storms struck and affected the already vulnerable resettlement sites across Sofala and Manica provinces.
In late 2019 and early 2020, the security environment deteriorated and attacks against civilians across the Cabo Delgado and other northern provinces increased. This has led to a significant rise in displacement across the province, and consequently to an increase in protection risks, shelter, and displacement management needs, in particular for the most vulnerable, both displaced persons, host families and those left behind. The insecurity uprooted over 732,000 people in need of emergency Shelter/NFI support. The International Organization for Migration (IOM) has played a major role in humanitarian, transition shelter and durable solution operations in Mozambique. IOM’s unique position as an intergovernmental organization allows it to work at scale in both natural disasters and conflict/complex contexts.
