The 2019-2020 Regional Refugee Response Plan (RRRP) for the Democratic Republic of the Congo presents the biannual inter-agency response to the renewed and heightened humanitarian challenge posed by the mounting number of Congolese refugees in the countries neighbouring the DRC, including existing refugee populations and new arrivals, and host communities.

By the end of 2019, response partners aim to address the needs of 1,152,000 Congolese refugees in seven countries of asylum (Angola, Burundi, the Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Uganda, the United Republic of Tanzania and Zambia), which have detailed response plans featured in separate chapters, and in other countries in the region where Congolese refugees are being hosted.

Response activities and interventions in refugee hosting areas that are impacted by the refugee crisis will target local populations with the aim to provide assistance to some 1,588,000 individuals, thus ensuring access for all to better quality services while promoting development and building social cohesion.
