In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, rural populations are the most affected by recurrent shocks. Violence perpetrated by armed groups and inter-community conflict are triggering massive population displacements, mainly in the eastern part of the country. Compounding the situation are floods, insufficient rainfall in certain areas, epidemics and fall armyworm, which are limiting availability of and access to food thus exacerbating vulnerabilities and humanitarian needs. It is thus crucial to provide timely agricultural support to vulnerable households to allow them to produce their own food and generate income.
