This project aims to contribute to a future of peace and reconciliation in Mozambique with no resurgence of military hostilities between the Government and Renamo (opposition group). This project works to support peace and reconciliation activities, such as the demobilization, disarmament and reintegration (DDR) of 5,000 former combatants, and augment the reconciliation strategy towards peaceful, sustainable governance throughout the country. The project also aims to provide a diverse range of capabilities including technical, logistical and administrative support to both the peace and DDR processes. These include a particular focus on gender, and facilitates the reintegration of Renamo ex-combatants into society.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) peace infrastructure exists to support the full implementation of the Maputo Accord for Peace and Reconciliation; and (2) disarmament and demobilisation of Renamo ex-combatants is completed as per Memorandum of Understanding and a Reintegration Concept agreed to be parties.

Results achieved 

Results achieved as of March 2021 include: (1) 2307 of 5227 ex-combatants disarmed, demobilized and returned home; (2) 153 women out of a total of 257 women ex-combatants completed the reintegration process.
