Project General Description

The African Development Bank's emergency assistance to the Mozambican government follows the drought situation that affected Mozambique from October 2015 to March 2016. This situation has significantly reduced the hydrometric levels of the main river basins in the south (Limpopo , Incomati, Inhanombe and Save) and from the center (Zambezi, Pungoe and Buzi). The disaster led to the loss of livestock, i.e. 4 500 cows and 68 goats, 550 116 ha of crops affecting 320 498 farms (representing 11% of the total cultivated area in Mozambique). The purpose of this assistance is to contribute to the ongoing efforts of the Government and other humanitarian partners to mobilize resources for early recovery interventions to address the urgent and immediate needs of drought affected households. In practical terms, this emergency humanitarian aid should cover the cost of buying 753.8 tonnes of maize and white beans. It will also enable ground transportation, storage and handling (LTSH) and auditing. White maize and beans will be distributed to 75,000 people in Gilé, Ile and Mocuba in Zambezia Funharoulo, Govuro, Mabote and Panda provinces in Inhambane province and Massingir districts in Gaza province for two months.

Project Objectives

The emergency relief assistance aims at restoring a degree of normalcy in both the social and economic life of the affected populations as quickly as possible.

Beneficiaries

The direct bénéficiaries are households and people in Gilé, Ile and Mocuba in Zambezia Funharoulo, Govuro, Mabote and Panda provinces in Inhambane province and Massingir districts in Gaza province.
