DR Congo - Humanitarian Brief: A relentlessly acute crisis, 2017-2019 Overview

A relentlessly acute crisis

Two decades of successive shocks, armed conflicts and intercommunity violence have placed millions of families in the throes of acute consequences such as epidemic outbreaks, malnutrition and food insecurity. Population movement generates over half of the humanitarian needs, including over 2.1 million people internally displaced within the country and half a million refugees at the end of 2016. The humanitarian context is aggravated by political and pre-electoral tensions, economic downturn and the spread of violence. In some areas, the situation keeps deteriorating due to physical and security obstacles. The lack of development and the significant gender inequalities also generate chronic vulnerabilities.
