FAO response in Mozambique after Cyclone Idai

Jul 2019

After Cyclone Idai, FAO and its partners are helping farmers in Mozambique to get ready for the main agricultural season in September, which will be critical in terms of food security for the following months and into next year.

In time for the April planting season, FAO distributed 14 700 agricultural kits to reach around 73 000 people in the most-affected provinces of Sofala and Manica. The seeds were early-maturing crops that will be ready for harvest 90 days after planting, protecting the immediate food security of most-affected households. Each kit contains: 8 kg maize seeds, 4 kg bean seeds, 2 hoes and 1 machete.
