Project General Description

This intervention concerns Enhancing Private Sector Engagement and Capacity Building for Refugees and IDPs in Fragile Context in Mozambique. The project aims to enhance private sector engagement in fragile contexts, such as those in refugee and IDP settlements and their surrounding host communities in Nampula and Cabo Delgado Provinces and contribute to improving the economic inclusion and self-reliance of the displaced and the communities that host them. The project will provide capacity building and strengthen market linkages in the refugee and IDP locations making them inclusive – system/ entrepreneurship actors including the local private and public sectors, service providers as well as refugees, IDPs and their host communities who are often excluded all benefit from economic opportunities therein. At the end of the project, refugees, IDPs and their host communities are expected to have improved capacity to meet market demand, resulting in more sustainable opportunities. On the other hand, the private sector is expected to benefit from access to more stable supply.

Project Objectives

The project aims to enhance private sector engagement in order to improve the inclusiveness of market systems and entrepreneurship in fragile areas in Northern Mozambique, including refugee and Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) settlements and their surrounding host communities in Nampula and Cabo Delgado Provinces. The project will focus on institutional capacity building of IDP’s and Refugees and Governmental Extension Services.

Beneficiaries

The project will directly support 600 households (60% women) forcibly displaced persons, including 40% of the host communities across Nampula and Cabo Delgado to achieve sustained income and gradually reduce dependency on relief aid. In addition, around 2000 households (estimated 10,000 individuals) would have access to services which were previously restricted or unavailable, such as training and skills development, financial services, business development and extension services, markets and related facilities, among others.
