“While we still have 700,000 IDPs around the north and parts of central Mozambique, 600,000 displaced persons have actually gone home in the last one to two years. That's a big deal. That's a vote for peace. That's a sense of confidence that we are turning a corner in Mozambique. And so, whilst we're here to learn how to better support displaced people in their displacement today, we're also here to learn how to accompany these hundreds of thousands of people who are heading home, who need to be supported.”

“Solutions are all about rebuilding a life, not just physically, but all of the social, economic parts that make up a good life. So, a lot of learning here, a lot of humility, to understand the size of the challenge, to understand the government's vision and the government has a vision in Mozambique; transferring land to displaced people, of allowing people to go home or to be integrated into towns if they choose not to go home and to giving them support in that process. But they need a lot more help from the international community.”

“It's not a simple situation because you still have humanitarian challenges, people being displaced by recent insecurity. But you need and we must invest more and more in solutions to, in solutions, in particular in the return of people to their homes. But we must invest in making these solutions sustainable. The key issues here are food security, the restoration of, public services. UNHCR is, involved in this, complex inter-agency plan in support of the government.”

“In addition to people displaced by conflict, like here in Cabo Delgado, in the north of the country, in more central parts of the country, you have many people that are displaced periodically by, catastrophic, natural disasters as a result, clearly, of climate change. So, interventions to solve displacement need to look at all contexts. They need to look at a more conflict context where security is perhaps the biggest necessity and the climate context where the climate action is the biggest necessity.”

Storyline

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi, and the Secretary-General’s Special Adviser on Solutions to Internal Displacement, Robert Piper visited Mozambique and called for a renewed international commitment to finding solutions for the displaced.

Mozambique has been plagued in recent years by humanitarian crises linked to violence from non-state armed groups and the adverse impacts of the climate emergency. It currently hosts around 700,000 internally displaced people as well as hundreds of thousands of returnees who require assistance.

SOUNDBITE (English) Robert Piper, Special Advisor on Solutions for Internal Displacement, United Nations:
“While we still have 700,000 IDPs around the north and parts of central Mozambique, 600,000 displaced persons have actually gone home in the last one to two years. That's a big deal. That's a vote for peace. That's a sense of confidence that we are turning a corner in Mozambique. And so, whilst we're here to learn how to better support displaced people in their displacement today, we're also here to learn how to accompany these hundreds of thousands of people who are heading home, who need to be supported.”

On a joint visit to the country from 4 to 7 March, the UN principals reaffirmed their commitment to work with the Government and other partners to strengthen solutions for the displaced in Mozambique.

“Solutions are all about rebuilding a life, not just physically, but all of the social, economic parts that make up a good life. So, a lot of learning here, a lot of humility, to understand the size of the challenge, to understand the government's vision and the government has a vision in Mozambique; transferring land to displaced people, of allowing people to go home or to be integrated into towns if they choose not to go home and to giving them support in that process. But they need a lot more help from the international community.”

Mozambique is a pilot country under the UN Secretary-General’s Action Agenda on internal displacement, an effort to overhaul how the UN system is responding to protracted displacement. At the height of the conflict in 2021 and 2022, over 1 million people were displaced in the province following attacks by extremists since 2017.

SOUNDBITE (English) Filippo Grandi, High Commissioner for Refugees, United Nations:
“It's not a simple situation because you still have humanitarian challenges, people being displaced by recent insecurity. But you need and we must invest more and more in solutions to, in solutions, in particular in the return of people to their homes. But we must invest in making these solutions sustainable. The key issues here are food security, the restoration of, public services. UNHCR is, involved in this, complex inter-agency plan in support of the government.”

Over 632,000 have returned to their communities but now face the challenges of rebuilding destroyed homes and access to livelihoods.

They need to look at a more conflict context where security is perhaps the biggest necessity and the climate context where the climate action is the biggest necessity.”

Grandi and Piper met with IDPs in Mueda district examining transitional shelters, protection and community centers and meeting with female entrepreneurs trained in business management. They also visited a development programme and met returnees in Mocimboa da Praia.
