Tropical Cyclones Idai and Kenneth Mozambique - National Situation Report 1
As part of the early recovery mechanisms, the Government of Mozambique requested a Post Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA) which is a process of systematically estimating the extent of a disaster’s effects and impact across all sectors and social groups in terms of damages, losses and recovery needs. WHO contributed to this process by providing capacity building as well as technical support as the Lead UN agency for the health and nutrition sector with regards to the estimation of damages, losses and recovery needs of the health and nutrition sector. The preliminary findings have been submitted in respect of cyclone Idai and the Government has approved the estimations. The report is being finalized and results of the PDNA are intended to support discussions and advocacy for donor and technical support for recovery especially at the upcoming donor conference on 31st May and 1st June 2019 in Beira.
