The latest in our series of learning summaries, this summary highlights the main challenges, successes and lessons learned during a project in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to provide livelihood support to communities affected by conflict.
Our partners the Centre Résolution Conflits works to help war-affected communities rebuild and become more resilient. Their work reaches several locations across the North Kivu and Ituri provinces of the DRC, in particular Beni and Lubero. To do this, they bring together young people and members of the community to start up community development initiatives and access income generating activities.
As well as presenting the impact of the project, and the challenges and successes that arose from it, this summary also provides key recommendations to make communities more resilient to violence, whilst building livelihoods and reducing poverty.
