to assist
1.8 million people

FAO requires
USD 50 million

January – December 2019

For over two decades, the Democratic Republic of the Congo has suffered from a series of shocks – armed conflict, epidemic outbreaks and natural hazards – that have continued to increase humanitarian needs and people’s vulnerabilities.


FAO is working with partners of the Food Security Cluster to:

• Protect and restore the livelihoods of crisis-affected households to increase their self-reliance.

• Enhance production and marketing chains and support the establishment of income-generating activities.
