Living and Working Conditions:

The position is based in Pemba, the capital of Cabo Delgado Province, in the north of Mozambique. Pemba is a D, Non-Family duty-station. Mozambique has a total population of about 29 million people and Maputo is its capital city. The total area of Mozambique is 799,380 Km square from North to South. It is tropical hot and humid. The hottest and wettest months are December to February, when the average daily minimum temperatures are around 22 °c and the average daily highs of 30 °c. The rain season is between October and April. Winters (June to August) are mild with the average daily temperature ranging from 13 °C to 24 °C. Cabo Delgado is bordering Tanzania, with a population of over 2.2 million individuals according to the 2017 census. The province, considered one of the poorest in the country, was hit by cyclone Kenneth in April 2019, which affected several villages, causing material damage and the displacement of many residents. The province has also been targeted by armed groups that have been attacking local villages since October 2017. The number and intensity of attacks increased consistently in 2020. Communication and transport services are available at various costs. The housing market is healthy but quite expensive (from US$ 800 to US$ 1,500 per month). Pemba has one large supermarket and one international airport. The metical is the local currency and exchange rate stands at USD 1 equivalent to about 63.2 meticais (MZN) as per December 2021. Pemba has 3 health facilities: ISOS clinic, CLIDIS private clinic and the Provincial hospital. There is a wide range of Banks and ATMs to meet financial needs. Credit/debit cards are accepted in most places. UNDSS-cleared hotels are available, with the rates differing depending on the availability and season. MOSS compliant apartments are available. The current operational circumstances require frequently long working hours. This is a stressful work context, making capacity for self-care critical. According to the security level system, Cabo Delgado is at level 4. Crime in Pemba and villages outside of the capital is concerning and UN personnel must remain vigilant and aware of their surroundings. Traffic accidents are common in Mozambique due to the poor condition of the roads and poor driving and vehicle standards.
