Year-end Overview

Plan Overview

Working environment

According to a verification of refugees and asylum-seekers conducted in 2016-2017, there are 22,400 refugees and asylum-seekers in Mozambique. In addition, some 15,000 Mozambicans continued to be internally displaced by mid-2017. The operation is likely to continue receiving an average of 150 new arrivals per month in 2018, unless the situation in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and/or Burundi changes. It also expects to receive at least 7,500 Mozambican returnees from Malawi and Zimbabwe.
In addition, Mozambique continues to receive a steady flow of refugees and economic migrants. Mixed movement is addressed jointly with IOM and the relevant government departments through regular exchange of information and joint planning of activities. The Government of Mozambique will need continued support in developing a comprehensive response for mixed movements.
A majority (75 per cent) of refugees from Burundi and the Democratic Republic of the Congo are pursuing local integration.
The National Institute for Support of Refugees (INAR) is UNHCR’s key interlocutor. The national institute for Employment and Labor (INEFP) provides vocational training. The Government also provides land for expansion of the agricultural activities in Maratane camp and supports the ‘livelihoods for durable solutions’ project.
The livelihoods for durable solutions project and reintegration of the Mozambican returnees from Malawi and Zimbabwe are one of the critical areas who will require support in 2018. UNHCR is carrying out protection monitoring of the repatriation and re-integration of Mozambican from Malawi and Zimbabwe.

Key priorities

In 2018, UNHCR will focus on:
  • Promoting durable solutions through access to livelihood activities, and introduction of cash based interventions (CBI) for the most vulnerable;
  • Protecting people of concern in mixed movement in close cooperation with IOM;
  • Facilitating voluntary repatriation of Mozambican asylum-seekers from Malawi and Zimbabwe;
  • Promoting access to citizenship for refugee and asylum-seeker children born in the country and assisting refugees in naturalization procedures.
