In March 2019, over 1.5 million people were affected by Cyclone Idai across four provinces of Mozambique. By October 1 that year, half of those in shelters had returned home, while 61 resettlement areas remained open. An estimated 240,000 homes have been affected, half destroyed completely, and the rest partially destroyed. Through a rapid market assessment, the government of Mozambique and its partners sought to better understand markets to help communities rebuild their homes. The purpose of the study is to help the Shelter Cluster to support decision-making and advocate with the government and other stakeholders regarding appropriate modality options (in-kind, service provision, market support, voucher and cash) for shelter reconstruction.
