Following the widespread devastations caused by Cyclones Idai and Kenneth, the Government and its international partners began the long and challenging emergency response and recovery efforts. The severity of the damage and loss, estimated at 3.2 billion, plus the underlying vulnerability and limited capacity in the affected areas have made the recovery effort much more difficult. UNDP has been supporting the Government of Mozambique from the inception including providing policy and technical support for the International Pledging Conference that took place on 31 st May and 1 st June 2019 in the city of Beira. The International Pledging Conference yielded $1.3 billion in pledges from development partners. Both Government and development partners underscored the importance of building resilience and fast-tracking implementation.
Drawing from the PDNA and the DRF, UNDP’s vision of the cyclone recovery programme in Mozambique arises from key considerations related to development, governance and resilience. To realize this vision, UNDP has established a Recovery Facility funded through a UNDP-led multi-donor Basket Fund as an agile tool to implement short-to-long term recovery activities that will contribute to addressing the root causes of vulnerability and build resilience to future disaster. It has three important pillars:
The Recovery Facility is being funded with the support of resources from the European Union, Canada, Finland, Netherlands and Norway along with UNDP. The programme’s total budget is $72.2 million. Given the mandate of the programme, size of resources and the imperative of fasttracking implementation, UNDP has decided to establish a dedicated Programme Management Unit based in Beira.
The Driver works in close collaboration with the operations, programme and project teams in the Country Office and Government officials to successfully deliver the Project services.
