Heavy rainfall triggered severe floods in the Southern region of Mozambique, including areas of Maputo. The National Disaster Risk Management Institute (INGC) reported around 37,000 people affected, and contacted UN-SPIDER. At the request of INGC, UN-SPIDER activated the International Charter Space and Major Disasters. The International Charter was activated on 16 February 2023, designating the International Water Management Institute as project manager and INGC as a value-added provider.
More information on this activation of the International Charter is available here.
