This document, jointly developed by UN agencies; IOM; the Red Cross; and NGOs, guides the support to be provided by HCT to GoM in meeting the humanitarian needs of the affected population and undertaking necessary steps towards an early recovery and resilience-building of communities.
It explains the overall and sectoral strategies, and resources needed by all partners and donors willing to support this tremendous effort. It includes both immediate life-saving assistance to the affected population and early recovery actions. The activities, when possible, are carried out with a gender perspective and human rights-based approach.
This RRP seeks $30.3 million to enable the humanitarian community to address the needs of over 160,000 flood-affected people, in particular 50,000 IDPs, to recover and rebuild their lives. Furthermore, it seeks to support those whose crops and livelihoods were devastated by the heavy rains and floods.
The main strategic objectives of the Response and Recovery Proposal are:
1) To provide immediate lifesaving and life-sustaining assistance to the population affected by the floods in the following areas: shelter, water, sanitation, and hygiene, food, health, protection, nutrition and education;
2) To restore livelihoods and support the normalisation of flood-affected communities through early recovery and resilience-building activities that link the humanitarian activities to longer-term development efforts, and;
3) Boost logistics and operational
capacity by strengthening coordination and reinforcing the logistics cluster, guaranteeing that relief items are adequately procured and distributed in a timely manner.

Zambézia province remains the worst hit, with 119,564 people (24,278 families) affected, of which 50,481 people (11,662 families) are hosted across 49 accommodation centers. Rescue operations are still underway, and as the weather improves and river levels drop, major transport links are also beginning to be reestablished.

On 12 January 2015, the Council of Ministers of Mozambique declared an institutional red alert for the central and northern parts of the country due to heavy rains and consequent floods which have covered vast areas. The government is distributing food and non-food items to affected people and WFP has pre-positioned food to complement the government’s efforts in the most affected areas.

The government requested, through the UN Resident Coordinator, immediate support from donors and international partners to meet the humanitarian needs and ensure sustainable recovery of flood-affected populations. The request is in line with the Government Contingency Plan for the 2014/2015 rainy and cyclone season.

The number of affected people reported by the government is increasing, from 53,000 on 16 January to 120,000 people on 19 January. Of these, approximately 50,000 are housed in 49 accommodation centres, including schools and religious centres.

WFP is prepositioning commodities (maize meal, pulses and oil) close to the most affected districts to support an initial caseload of 12,500 people for one month.

On 19 January, WFP positioned a mobile storage unit in Quelimane, Zambézia province, which is ready to be moved to where it is most needed. WFP also remains on standby to support the government with additional transport.

Through the HCT, WFP provided the government on 15 January with three short-range radio antennas (with one dipole), and one medium-range radio antenna (with four dipoles) for affected districts of Mocuba, Namacurra and Mangaja da Costa.

WFP deployed vehicles with VHF and HF communication systems to Mocuba and Quelimane on 18 January.

All WFP emergency support interventions are being carried out in the context of the Humanitarian Country Team and in close collaboration with the government and local humanitarian partners.

WFP Mozambique urgently needs some USD 5.5 million USD to provide three months of food assistance to 100,000 people who are currently estimated to have been affected by floods in central and northern Mozambique.
