Northern Region: Sweden Provides $6.4M for Food Security and Climate Change Programme

The Swedish government has made 6.4 million euros (450 million meticals) available to fund a food security programme, the fight against climate change and the empowerment of women in some districts of the provinces of Niassa, Cabo Delgado and Nampula, in the northern region of Mozambique.

The initiative, called “Alcance”, will be developed by a consortium of ten organisations led by We Effect and aims to alleviate the vulnerability of some families in the areas of food security, housing, natural resource management and women’s empowerment for a period of two years.

In her speech, the secretary general of We Effect, Anna Tubblin, emphasised the importance of achieving positive results in order to reduce the suffering of the most vulnerable people, hoping that the project will benefit everyone equally.

“The action aims to complement the government’s efforts to guarantee the well-being of the population, with particular emphasis on the northern region which faces multiple challenges,” she emphasised.

What is We Effect?

We Effect is a development cooperation organisation founded by the Swedish cooperative movement in 1958 with the aim of fighting poverty. It works in more than 20 countries in Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America and Africa.

The organisation has been active in Mozambique since 2003, with the mission of improving the lives of people living in poverty, particularly those from rural areas and especially women.

There are currently two offices in the country: the National Office in the capital Maputo and a Programme Office in Lichinga, the provincial capital of Niassa.

We Effect’s main work includes mobilising resources and building the organisational capacity of its partners to enable them to effectively deliver the services targeted by its members in a sustainable way.

In Mozambique, the institution supports farmers’ organisations and others working with natural resources and land rights.
