SPHI Brief 23: Emergency response in Mozambique

In Mozambique, CIP and partners have been on the frontline for mitigating the effects of the recurrent floods and droughts. In the last two cropping seasons, most of the southern and central part of the country was hit by severe drought. Overall, 60-90% of affected farmers reported crop losses and field destruction among the hardships they have experienced. As response, the Government of Mozambique and CIP developed a mitigation strategy based on the agriculture-nutrition approach to delivery orange-fleshed sweetpotato (OFSP) technologies to increase food security and improve the diets of 25,000 poor households in Gaza, Inhambane, and Maputo Provinces.
