The Democratic Republic of the Congo - Response Plan 2017–2018

The Democratic Republic of the Congo - Response Plan 2017–2018
Oct 2017

The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is experiencing a protracted humanitarian crisis. Extreme poverty, a fragile security context and intensified inter-community conflict have rendered communities increasingly vulnerable. 7.7 million people are facing crisis and emergency levels of food insecurity (phases 3 and 4), representing 11 percent of the rural population.

This is mainly due to the crisis in Kasaï provinces and Tanganyika. The response will take an integrated two track emergency response approach; combining emergency support to small holder agriculture production through the provision of seeds, tools and livestock as well as small scale livelihoods starter kits in order to save lives, protect livelihoods and build resilience of IDPs, returnees and host communities. Priorities for 2017 are as follows: Initial relief interventions in the areas most affected by population movements; fostering access and production of nutritious food; and supporting rural livelihoods opportunities including income generation and social cohesion.
