Since 2017, Mozambique has been immersed in a humanitarian crisis linked to violence perpetrated by non-state armed groups that deeply impacts the 25,000 refugees and asylum-seekers hosted by the country and which has led to the internal displacement of 850,500 people. In addition to these challenges, Mozambique, one of the countries most adversely affected by the impacts of the climate crisis in the world, also struggled with more than 40,000 people internally displaced by extreme weather events as of December 2023. The double landfall of Tropical Cyclone Freddy in February and March 2023, a year following the devastation brought by Tropical Cyclone Gombe, for instance, affected over 1 million people, destroyed infrastructure, and displaced some 184,000 people. Throughout 2023, 300,966 people returned to their areas of origin, many of which still lack basic services and adequate living conditions. UNHCR continues to stress that all return movements should occur in an informed, safe, voluntary, and dignified manner.

UNHCR Mozambique continues to work with authorities and development actors to address the protection and assistance needs and support sustainable solutions for internally displaced people in the northern provinces of Cabo Delgado, Nampula, and Niassa, for refugees and asylum-seekers, and for the communities that host them. In addition, preparedness and response efforts to natural hazards, including cyclones, flooding, and drought, are also cross-cutting in the response.
