The United Nations World Food Programme is the world’s largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. The mission of WFP is to help the world achieve Zero Hunger in our lifetimes. Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need.
In March and April 2019, Mozambique was hit by two consecutive tropical cyclones. In March, the Tropical Cyclone Idai weather system’s impact came in three waves: in early March, the low pressure system caused flooding in Zambezia and Tete; on 14 March, Cyclone Idai made landfall near the port City of Beira, and over the weekend of 16-17 March, the weather system carried torrential rains across multiple areas. On 25 April, Tropical Cyclone Kenneth made landfall in Cabo Delgado province.
The cyclones have compounded an already serious food insecurity situation in Mozambique. From September to December 2018, an estimated 1.78 million people (IPC phase 3 and above) were severely food insecure in the country, according to the Integrated Phase Classification (IPC) analysis. Rural assets and structures have been destroyed. Food insecurity is therefore expected to rise significantly in the months ahead as a result of the destruction and damage.
With 1.5 million people in need in the IDAI-affected areas, and about 1.7M people targeted by the Food Security Custer (FSC), the needs for food and early recovery assistance required the intervention of all food security actors. Coordination is critical and the Food Security Cluster has been playing an important role in consolidating needs and responses from various actors but also in sharing information with all stakeholders.
The Information Management/ Reporting role is essential to ensure an effective coordination and data analysis of the FSC response. To support this crucial activity for the Food Security sector and especially for the FSC, the FAO Mozambique office is looking for a national Information Management Officer to sustainably support the Food Security Cluster team.
The National Information Management Officer fulfills the function of collecting, analyzing and sharing information essential to the Food Security Cluster and its stakeholders. In her/his capacity, the Information Management Officer will be an essential support to the Food Security Cluster and cluster lead agencies (FAO and WFP) in Mozambique, providing all the information needed to guide the response to needs and priorities. The core competency of the Information Management Officer lies in the ability to convey information in a synthetic and easily understandable form to a wide and varied audience, using the appropriate modes of communication (newsletters, briefing notes, cartographic supports, tables, diagrams, etc).
The National Information Management Officer will work in direct collaboration with the Food Security Cluster team, which FAO co-leads with WFP, so that the information collected about the food and nutritional security situation can be analyzed consensually and shared with sectoral operational partners in order to inform the whole sectoral response.
The National Information Management officer will directly support the cluster coordinator in the following activities:
