• On 13th March, OCHA reported that the United Nations and its humanitarian partners launched on 12th March a Flash Appeal for US$17.7 million to support the Mozambican government's response to humanitarian needs arising from severe flooding that began in February and from the impact of Cyclone Favio.

• The funds will be used to provide relief and recovery assistance for 435,000 affected people for a period of up to six months.

• The Appeal comes in response to the Government's US$71 million Recovery and Reconstruction Plan launched on 5 March, which focuses on the resettlement of people, the reactivation of agricultural production, water supplies and roads, health and educational support, the reconstruction of public infrastructure and rapid recovery support to the private sector.
