    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 the practice of agriculture, have been seriously impacted, harming the quality of life and worsening food insecurity. The goal of the Data in Emergencies (DIEM) team at the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) was to assess the impact of decades of violence on agriculture , food security and livelihoods in Ituri, and to propose recommendations for programming. This document is a summary of the DIEM-Impact report carried out following the August 2023 assessment.

    The Democratic Republic of the Congo is one of Africa’s largest internal displacement crises, with 22 percent of the population acutely food insecure due to increased armed conflict and the impact of climate hazards. Emergency agricultural interventions offer cost‑effective solutions. For example, with a USD‑80 market gardening package, a family can quickly produce a variety of nutritious vegetables, worth USD 480 on the local market, improving their self‑reliance.

    In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, rural populations are the most affected by recurrent shocks. Violence perpetrated by armed groups and inter-community conflict are triggering massive population displacements, mainly in the eastern part of the country. Compounding the situation are floods, insufficient rainfall in certain areas, epidemics and fall armyworm, which are limiting availability of and access to food thus exacerbating vulnerabilities and humanitarian needs. It is thus crucial to provide timely agricultural support to vulnerable households to allow them to produce their own food and generate income.
