The World Food Programme - Mozambique Country Office launched its second generation Country Strategic Plan (CSP) in July 2022 to contribute further to the global agenda of 'saving lives and changing lives,' to which Field Office activities align. The World Food Programme (WFP) Xai-Xai Field Office covers both drought-stricken provinces of Inhambane and Gaza which are part of the southern Mozambique region. In the area, livelihoods are majorly dependent on rain-fed agriculture, severally affected by dry spells and low rainfall levels, coupled with variability in agricultural seasons affecting crop maturity and yields. Sometimes the agriculture in the region is also impacted by high incidence of flooding driven by the Limpopo River Basin across the provinces. Often times, the agriculture production is impacted by increased temperatures. These factors, among others, exacerbate the already fragile context and increased levels of vulnerability compromising community ability to cope amidst recurring shocks.
To ensure WFP Xai-Xai Field Office addresses the issues above mentioned we are currently looking for motivated and qualified candidates to enroll on the 2023 National Internship Programme who will be supporting the Monitoring and Reporting team based in Xai-Xai Field Office.
