Current Operations
Logistics Cluster Coordination and Information Management, Democratic Republic of Congo

The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) presents one of the most complex humanitarian crises in the world. Since 2009, some 2.71 million people have been displaced. Humanitarian needs remain high, with the southern and eastern provinces being the worst affected by continuing instability and violence. The December 2012 IPC2 analysis revealed that 6.4 million people are in acute and livelihood food security crisis and need humanitarian assistance, up from 5.4 million in June 2012. Despite countrywide movements of Internally Displaced People (IDPs) returning to their areas of origin in 2014, significant conflict-related displacements are still occurring in North and South Kivu (in eastern DRC),
Katanga (in southern DRC), and in the north-eastern Province Orientale. The UN mission MONUSCO and the Congolese army (FARDC) continue attempts to demobilize and disarm armed groups in the eastern part of Province Orientale and North Kivu. DRC was classified as an L2 emergency by WFP in December 2013.
