Countries involved


The conflict in northern Mozambique's Cabo Delgado province has led to widespread displacement, food insecurity, and disrupted services. Non-state armed groups (NSAGs) have targeted civilians and security forces, causing casualties and destruction of homes since 2017. Despite government efforts, NSAGs persist, evolving tactics to gain community acceptance while retaining the capacity for simultaneous attacks across the region. Humanitarian access remains challenging, with thousands displaced and vulnerable to violence and displacement. The conflict's toll on civilians underscores the urgent need for sustained efforts towards humanitarian assistance and long-term stability. Furthermore, high levels of food insecurity, including IPC 4 in 2 districts of Cabo Delgado, exacerbate the crisis, necessitating comprehensive strategies to address the humanitarian needs of affected populations.
