FAO/WFP Agriculture and Food Security Mission to Mozambique

Special Report

In response to the impact of two intense tropical cyclones in central and northern provinces and substantial rainfall deficits in southern provinces, the Government of Mozambique requested an FAO/WFP Crop and Food Security Assessment Mission (CFSAM).

The Mission visited the country from 13 to 26 May 2019, with the remit to evaluate cereal production in the 2019 agricultural season, assess the overall food security situation, estimate the cereal import requirements in the 2019/20 marketing year (April/March) and determine any food assistance needs.

The Mission received the full support from the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security (MASA), which provided technical staff to accompany the Mission on its field visits. Prior to departure to the field, the Mission was briefed on the current situation by officials from MASA, the Agricultural Market Information System (SIMA), the Ministry of Industry and Commerce (MIC), the Technical Secretariat for Food Security (SETSAN) and FEWS NET, as well as by representatives from FAO and WFP.
