Year-end Overview

Plan Overview

Working environment

Despite the reservations to the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees on the freedom of movement, employment, naturalization, right of association, the current practices of the Government support de facto/de jure local integration through documentation, naturalization, basic services, (de facto) freedom of movement. In addition, the Government is providing additional land to Maratane camp to improve the self-sufficiency of refugees.

Nevertheless, only a few refugees have been supported in maintaining vegetable, crop or poultry farms to supplement their diet or to generate income. Some 9,000 refugees and asylum-seekers in Maratane camp are dependent on insufficient monthly food rations.

In addition, the asylum procedure in Mozambique does not currently meet the minimum standards of quality, fairness and efficiency, and the refugee status determination backlog is significant. 

Key priorities

In 2017 the UNHCR operation in Mozambique will focus on:

•    improving the quality and efficiency of the asylum process through capacity building;
•    supporting the Government in clearing the refugee status determination backlog (2015-2017);
•    supporting local authorities to formulate the Nampula District Development Strategy/Plan to promote the self-sufficiency of refugees and to share available resources and services between the host community and refugees;
•    providing legal assistance to facilitate the birth registration of refugee children; 
•    implementing cash-based interventions in Maratane camp, subject to available funding.
