    The Democratic Republic of the Congo is still one of the world’s most food-insecure countries with one in four Congolese in high acute food insecurity. The key drivers remain violence triggering significant population displacements (mainly in the eastern provinces), the effects of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and related containment measures, limited infrastructure, the economic decline linked to the currency depreciation and drop in GDP growth, natural hazards (e.g. floods, animal diseases, etc.) and poor harvests. Providing vulnerable households with agricultural support is crucial to safeguard their livelihoods, particularly in the eastern regions as well as in Tanganyika and the Kasais given the withdrawal of the United Nations mission.

    Democratic Republic of the Congo | 2020 Humanitarian Response Plan 2020

    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.

    The Democratic Republic of Congo has the highest estimated number of people in acute food insecurity worldwide. The key drivers of food insecurity in the country are protracted conflict, mainly in the eastern provinces triggering population displacements and the disruption of livelihoods, the effects of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and related containment measures, the economic decline linked to the currency depreciation and drop in GDP growth, and natural hazards (floods, animal diseases, etc.). Any further disruption to food supply chains will worsen human suffering and hamper efforts to tackle and reduce food insecurity. It is thus crucial to deliver livelihood assistance throughout the country, particularly so as not to miss the upcoming agricultural seasons to quickly increase access to food, improve and diversify households’ daily diet, create alternative sources of income and supply markets with local, fresh products.
