Stabilization Stabilization Programme - Quarter 1 2023 - Cabo Delgado - Mozambique

August 31, 2023

The Immediate Stabilization and Recovery Programme, located in the Cabo Delgado Province in Mozambique, is being implemented since January 2023 in response to the attacks of non-stated armed groups (NSAG) and follows an unprededented deterioration of the security crisis initiated in March 2021.

The objective of the Programme aims to stabilize specific areas, cleared of NGSA control by supporting the establishment and reinforcement of State presence as the foundation for an improved social contract between the State and the citizens.

The Programme aims to achieve its objective through the following pillars (1) Rebuilding Community Security and Social Cohesion; (2) Bringing back public institutions and services, and (3) Providing socio-economic support to individuals and communities.

The Programme is currently implementing activities in six districts, namely Macomia, Quissanga, Mo-cimboa da Praia, Palma, Muidumbe and Nangade. In Q1, 4000 households in Mocimboa da Praia, Palma, Quissanga and Macomia received 400kg of sesame seeds along with agricultural tools, including hoes, water cans and motorized pumps.

Additionally, 321 people have been reached through Cash for Work initiatives in Mocimboa da Praia and Palma. Under the Community Security pillar, the construction of a community court in Quilawa, Palma is underway and 30 community justice actors have been trained on the role and jurisdiction of community courts as well as human rights and gender-based violence.

Currently, the design phase of 4 water systems were concluded and rehabilitation is due to commence in Q2. The rehabilitation of 3 infrastructures, 2 community health porches and 1 administrative building are ongoing.
