Solidar Swiss has an operational presence in Mozambique since 1984. Its development and humanitarian interventions focus on central Mozambique, i.e. the provinces of Sofala, Manica, Tete and Zambezia.
Solidar has more than two decades of experience in the field of community education, district participatory planning and access to water, sanitation, and hygiene and is currently implementing different Development and Humanitarian Action projects.
At present the organization is implementing a multi donor project in response to Cyclone Idai with 2 components (WASH and Food Security) contributing to the assistance and recovery of cyclone affected population in central Mozambique. Activities to prevent Covid-19 have been incorporated into all projects. Projects are managed by the Solidar coordination office based in Chimoio and the field offices located in Sussundenga and Buzi districts.
Following its global strategy, Solidar Suisse plans to set-up a permanent Humanitarian Action (HA) unit located in Mozambique. For this purpose, the Program Coordinator together with the Management body is currently designing a HA intervention strategy for the next 4 years 2021-2024. In order to gather enough information about the current situation of the country and evaluate potential lines of intervention, it was identified the need to conduct different thematic assessments in key areas, such as WASH, Food Security and Protection.
The main objective of the Assessment is to gather and analyse sectorial information on Food Security to get an in depth understanding of the population needs, other stakeholders’ interventions, government and cluster plans and tendencies as well as gaps. This information will be of great value when designing Solidar Swiss’s intervention strategy for the Humanitarian Action section for 2021-2024 in Mozambique.
