FRC recruits 01 Support coordinator

FRC recruits 01 Support coordinator – Maputo – Mozambique – H/F

Mission Context

Country context

Mozambique is experiencing its worst food insecurity emergency since the 2015/16 drought, with a high number of households in need of emergency assistance. This is the result of multiple shocks, including tropical cyclones IDAI and Kenneth with associated torrential rainfall, severe flooding, and drought in southern semi?arid areas. These shocks have significantly impacted crop production across the country as well as livelihoods, specifically in cyclone?affected areas. Poor households are expected to continue facing crisis food security outcomes.
