ETC DRC Factsheet, November 2017



Since April 2016, the conflict in the Kasai region of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has been escalating, causing widespread displacements and the loss of livelihoods. An estimated 3.2 million people are severely food insecure in the Kasai region and 762,000 people are internally displaced. Due to the conflict in Kasai, 33,500 people have fled to neighboring Angola and Zambia as refugees. 2 million people are internally displaced in the Kivus and Tanganyika regions. As the global lead of the ETC, the World Food Programme (WFP) is coordinating the ETC in DRC to provide vital common information and communication technologies (ICT) services including reliable security communications and data connectivity.
