    The Democratic Republic of the Congo: Impact of conflict on agriculture, food security and livelihoods in Ituri
    DIEM-Impact report, November 2023
    2023
    Also available in:

    Marked by more than forty years of conflict, the province of Ituri, in the northeast of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, has experienced massive population displacement and recurrent violence. The basic needs of the population, notably access to food and agriculture, have been seriously impacted, harming the quality of life and worsening food insecurity. The goal of the Data in Emergencies team at the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations was to assess the impact of decades of violence on agriculture, food security and livelihoods in Ituri, and to propose recommendations for programming.

    République démocratique du Congo: Impact des conflits sur l’agriculture,​ la sécurité alimentaire et les moyens d’existence en Ituri
    Note de synthèse du rapport DIEM-Impact (août 2023)
    2024
    Also available in:

    Marquée par plus de quarante ans de conflit, la province de l'Ituri, dans le nord-est de la République démocratique du Congo, a connu des déplacements de population massifs et des violences récurrentes. Les besoins fondamentaux de la population, notamment l'accès à la nourriture et la pratique de l'agriculture, ont été gravement impactés, nuisant à la qualité de vie et aggravant l'insécurité alimentaire. L'objectif de l'équipe Données en situations d'urgence (DIEM) de l'Organisation des Nations Unies pour l'alimentation et l'agriculture (FAO) était d'évaluer l'impact de ces décennies de violence sur l'agriculture, la sécurité alimentaire et les moyens d'existence en Ituri et de proposer des recommandations pour la programmation. Ce document est une synthèse du rapport DIEM-Impact réalisée suite à l'évaluation d'août 2023.

    South Sudan: The impact of conflict on food security and livelihoods

    Food insecurity in South Sudan is driven by cascading shocks including conflict and insecurity, macro-economic crisis caused by the depreciation of the local currency, high inflation, conflict in the Sudan, climatic shocks (floods and dry spells), climate- and conflict-induced population displacement, persistent low agricultural production levels, and the cumulative effects of prolonged years of asset depletion that continue to erode the coping capacities of households and the loss of livelihoods. This DIEM-Impact assessment adopted qualitative research approaches and enabled an understanding of experiences, attitudes, behaviours and interactions in relation to conflict and food insecurity, and the impacts of floods in locations where they have been prevalent.The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) established Data in Emergencies Impact (DIEM-Impact) to provide a granular and rapid understanding of the impact of large-scale hazards on agriculture and agricultural livelihoods using a variety of assessment methodologies, including primary and secondary information, remote sensing technologies, and FAO’s damage and loss methodology. DIEM-Impact presents a regularly updated and accessible state of food insecurity in fragile environments and helps underpin FAO's programming based on evidence.
