January – December 2019

In 2018, the crisis in the Democratic Republic of the Congo drastically worsened, spreading to previously unaffected areas, and continues to cause significant population displacement in the region.


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

• Promote social cohesion and peaceful co-existence between refugees and host communities through the implementation of targeted resilience programmes.

• Foster economic self-reliance and durable solutions for refugees, and host communities, by expanding the use of cash assistance, reducing the dependency on humanitarian aid and promoting socio-economic growth in line with national and development plans.
