Amministratore Paese – Mozambico
Since 2009 Cesvi works in Sofala Province supporting rural development and strengthening agricultural systems involving local farmers’ associations, implementing projects funded by the EU and by the Italian Cooperation.
In order to respond to the cyclone IDAI emergency, Cesvi scaled up its activities, in collaboration with the Alliance2015 consortium partners Concern and Welthungerhilfe, which are now operating under Cesvi flag in Beira and Nhamatanda.
Following joint assessments Cesvi, Concern and Welthungerhilfe have distributed Shelter/NFI/Wash Kits along with Seeds/tools and a seed protection ration to approx. 8,500 HH in Nhamatanda district, funded respectively by Concern, Welthungerhilfe, IOM, UNICEF, FAO and WFP.
Currently the consortium is implementing an ECHO/Irish Aid/Alliance2015 transition and early recovery programme covering WASH and emergency shelter.
Food Security and livelihood activities are undergoing funded with own funds of the consortium and Valencia Municipality
Furthermore, Cesvi is expected to apply for additional funds or call for proposals, in accordance with the country strategy.
