Mozambique: Cyclone Idai Response - Emergency Market Assessment of Pole and Bamboo

Executive Summary, Two-pager, and Full Report

In March 2019, more than 1.5 million people were affected by Cyclone Idai across four provinces of Mozambique.

An estimated 240,000 homes have been affected, half destroyed completely, and the rest partially destroyed.
