Malnutrition


The results of this Acute Food Insecurity pilot study indicate that for the current period (June - September 2020), about 55% of the population in the cities of Maputo and Matola is food secure (IPC Phase 1), 30% in Stress (IPC Phase 2) and 15% in Crisis (IPC Phase 3), i.e. about 365,000 people need humanitarian assistance to reduce food consumption deficiencies. 

The current restriction measures against COVID-19 since March/ April 2020 will affect the main economic activities in the cities of Maputo and Matola in different ways, but especially casual labour. Other factors negatively affecting household food security are reduced remittances and restrictions on informal imports of goods from South Africa, as well as commodity prices that are above the historical average.
