Read more about FAO in emergencies and the crisis in the Democratic Republic of the CongoThe Democratic Republic of the Congo continues to suffer from a series of shocks – armed conflict, epidemic outbreaks and natural hazards – that increase humanitarian needs and people’s vulnerabilities. In 2018, the crisis in the country drastically worsened, spreading to previously unaffected areas, and continues to cause significant population displacement in the region, with 1.3 million people internally displaced – the majority of whom live with host families who already face chronic poverty and food insecurity.

In the effort to contribute to peace-building, FAO is working to protect and restore the livelihoods of crisis-affected households, to increase their self-reliance, enhance production and marketing chains, and to support the establishment of income-generating activities.
