On March 15th 2019 a cyclone category four made landfall near the city of Beira and moved inland towards the central provinces of Sofala and Manica plus other areas, forcing Mozambique to declare the state of emergency. The destruction of the cyclone was precluded some days earlier by floods in the North Eastern Provinces. Both events have affected about 1.8 million, according to OCHA.
In the great Beira area there are more than 1,500 graduated students registered in IFPELAC’s (national TVET system) database and many of them are available to work but a great number of them were unemployed already or have been left unemployed by the impact of the cyclone in the private sector of the area. It is expected on the other hand that demand for this type of qualified workers will raise steeply in the reconstruction phase and will be essential to ensure that the rebuilding is done in a resilient and efficient manner.
ILO wants to contribute to the early recovery phase by using these locally available resources in a short term intervention whose main goal is to restore essential infrastructure while creating jobs and strengthening skills of ILO constituents’ capacities in Disaster Risk Reduction, while ensuring the transition to reconstruction techniques that deliver more resilient infrastructure. The ILO recently carried out a preliminary assessment of the affected areas in and around Beira and identified potential interventions that are crucial for the recovery effort. The ILO intend to implement some of this interventions and will engage IFPELAC to implement reconstruction activities and quick repairs using graduates from their training centres in Beira and nearby districts (Dondo and Buzi). ILO will promote the use of Labor Based Techniques when possible and economically feasible and a continuous skills development approach through practical work to ensure the improvement in the employability of the beneficiaries.
