Democratic Republic of the Congo | Improving the prospects for local peace through the Dimitra Clubs

Mar 2020

As part of a joint programme between the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Food Programme (WFP), FAO implemented the Dimitra Clubs, a gender-transformative approach aimed at improving rural livelihoods and gender equality through collective action and self-help. The Dimitra Clubs contributed to improving social cohesion and prospects for local peace in the Tanganyika Province in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This promising practice is an example of a resilience-building intervention implemented through an integrated, communitybased, multi-partner approach operationalizing the humanitarian-development-peace nexus.
