Summary and Implications

Household food security in Mozambique is improving with the improved availability of water and seasonal fruits and the distribution of food aid to those recovering from last seasonís drought. The food aid pipeline is now fully sourced. However, as the rainy season intensifies, rivers in southern and central Mozambique are now on flood alert, and many access roads have been cut off. In southern and central Mozambique, these rains are benefiting crop and livestock production, except in areas where fields have been inundated. In the north, however, much of Cabo Delgado Province and northern Niassa Province have received very little rain thus far in the season, warranting special attention.
