IHP responding to Cyclone Idai

Published: 2019-03-25

From Cyclone Idai struck Mozambique IHP has been in contact with our partners, especially OCHA and WFP.

A number of IHP members have individually but in connection with the government, partners or ECHO started operations in Mozambique. At the same time IHP deployed ICT experts in support of the UNDAC team sent by OCHA on which also the NGO MapAction is deployed. Parallel to this an IHP assessment team was sent to support WFP’s assessments, IHP’s part mainly being to assess possibilities to ensure accommodation, reasonable living conditions, and office facilities for the UN. Assessments are still on-going due to the changing situation but a deployment of support staff and equipment seems to be imminent.
