Report on Post-Harvest Food Security in Mozambique Released This Month

The Mozambican Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Celso Correia, said last week in Saudi Arabia that the report that mirrors the real situation of post-harvest food security in Mozambique will be released on the 15th of this month.

According to the minister, this is a study that will bring new data and enrich the current debate on food security in the country.

Recently, the minister said during a meeting in Rome, Italy, with the director-general of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), Qu Dongyu, that around 90 per cent of the population in Mozambique has safe food, or in other words, can already have three meals a day, which puts the country outside the countries at risk of hunger.

This position did not please civil society, and the Foundation for Community Development (FDC) demanded exact explanations from Celso Correia regarding his statements.

According to FDC, the information given by the governor contrasts with the reality experienced by millions of Mozambican citizens, adding that “people are dying of hunger in our country! Since this information has already been shared with the United Nations organization, and due to its relevance, it was expected that the leader would present it before the Mozambicans”.

However, Celso Correia said that “as of the 15th, many questions will be explained. And we believe that with the publication of the report we will have sufficient basis for a constructive debate on post-harvest food security issues”.
