Work context

Since the beginning of 2020, the ERRU Team have been closely monitoring the deterioration of the situation in Cabo Delgado. By mid 2020, given the dramatic increase in violence and displacement, ACF decided, in partnership with NRC, to undertake a joint mission to assess the situation and come up with recommendations on the relevance and modalities of a possible emergency intervention. 

Following this scoping mission, the ERRU presented the results of the assessment to the Board, which decided to re-open an ACF mission in Mozambique. Indeed, Cabo Delgado province, already one of the most vulnerable and poverty-stricken provinces of Mozambique, has experienced a dramatic deterioration in the humanitarian situation over the last 10 months. The number of displaced people rose from around 115,000 in March 2020 to 527,975 by the end of October 2020. As the conflict spreads, the access to the Cabo Delgado districts has decreased. By November 2020, 8 of the 16 districts in the province were deemed hard to reach (H2R) areas. 

The ERRU is now launching the process of registration in the country and is developing WaSH and Nutrition projects in partnership with local and international NGOs already present in Cabo Delgado to support the emergency response in the area.
