Country programme The Congo

The Congo is a middle-income country that imports 75 percent of its food needs and has an underdeveloped agriculture sector. Food insecurity affects 14 percent of households; 24 percent of children under 5 years of age are chronically malnourished. Access to health and education services is limited, particularly in rural areas. The country is extremely vulnerable to flooding.
