jobs description

IMPACT Initiatives is a humanitarian NGO, based in Geneva, Switzerland. The organisation manages several initiatives, including the REACH Initiative. The IMPACT team comprises specialists in data collection, management and analysis, GIS and remote sensing. IMPACT was launched at the initiative of ACTED, an international NGO with headquarters based in Paris and presence in thirty countries. The two organizations have a strong complementarity formalized in a global partnership, which allows IMPACT to benefit from ACTED’s operational support in its fields of intervention.
Mozambique has been experiencing a multifaceted and enduring crisis over the past several decades. This crisis is characterized by a convergence of climate-driven shocks, poverty, and insurgency in the northern region. In Cabo Delgado, the northernmost province, a conflict has been raging since 2017, instigated by the Ahlu Sunna Wal Jama (ASWJ) Islamist militia... and fuelled by pre-existing socio-economic marginalization, political and religious ideologies, as well as the exploitation of valuable natural resources. This protracted conflict has resulted in the displacement of hundreds of thousands of families, straining the region's limited capacity to address their needs.

In addition to the conflict, Mozambique faces constant risks related to natural hazards, including cyclones, floods, and droughts. The country ranks 11th globally and 3rd in sub-Saharan Africa in vulnerability to natural disasters. Mozambique's geographical location, topography, weak socio-economic infrastructure, and reliance on rain-fed agriculture contribute to this vulnerability. The population, already burdened by high poverty rates and a low Human Development Index, is particularly susceptible to the impact of these natural disasters. Cyclones and flooding pose significant threats to the coastal population, while droughts disrupt subsistence agriculture, driving food insecurity and malnutrition.

Following two brief missions in 2019 and 2023 in Mozambique, IMPACT will establish an in-country team starting in 2024. This team will be dedicated to delivering essential information regarding key humanitarian needs and supporting in the efficient prioritization of the humanitarian response.
