Summary

Foreign and Congolese armed groups are positioning themselves for the campaign and post-electoral periods in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo. Despite further reorganization, the Forces armées de la République démocratique du Congo (FARDC) is still divided by parallel chains of command, with many former soldiers of the Congrès national pour la défense du peuple (CNDP) still loyal to General Bosco Ntaganda, who has encouraged them to resist attempted reforms.
Some mineral processors, traders and end-users have made encouraging progress in implementing due diligence, but the mining sector as a whole remains some distance from adequate implementation of the due diligence guidelines produced by the Group of Experts on the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which the Security Council unanimously supported taking forward in paragraph 7 of its resolution 1952 (2010).
