Anticipation in practice: project description
WFP Mozambique is collaborating with government actors, primarily the national disaster management agency (INGC), the National Meteorological Agency (INAM), and the Ministry of Agriculture (MADER) to establish a drought early warning system and the supporting mechanisms to enable anticipatory action. This is being done by strengthening drought monitoring and forecasting capacities- including crop monitoring- and supporting contingency planning for anticipatory action to mitigate drought impacts on vulnerable, food insecure populations living in Gaza and Tete provinces. WFP is also working with relevant stakeholders to ensure that these efforts link up to a broader risk management framework led by the government to better anticipate and respond to disaster risk.
