Zimbabwe Rapid Impact and Needs Assessment (RINA)

Zimbabwe RINA report
May 2019

In April 2019, the GoZ initiated a joint exercise to assess the losses and damages arising from the cyclone and to develop a strategy for immediate recovery and longer-term resilience building. The result was the Zimbabwe Rapid Impact and Needs Assessment (RINA)—an effort to assess and quantify cyclone recovery and resilience building needs across ten sectors 2 Completed in May 2019, the RINA found there had been between US$542–616 million in damages or losses due to the cyclone across nine districts (table 01). Nearly half of the damages are in the two most impacted districts of Chimanimani and Chipinge. Nearly 90 percent of the overall damages are on transport (US$163.8 million), agriculture (US$155.3 million), and housing (US$131.5 million).
