Decades of conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) have displaced millions of people, particularly in the east of the country. Chronic political instability, ongoing conflict and the cyclical nature of displacement have left many IDPs highly vulnerable and unable to achieve durable solutions.
In order to better understand the complex displacement situation in DRC and establish an evidence base for more effective humanitarian and development interventions, JIPS has supported four profiling initiatives focused on eastern areas of the country as follows:
- Establishing agreed-upon evidence about displacement in North Kivu (2010)
- Tracking complex displacement patterns in DRC (2012)
- Profiling urban IDPs and their host communities in Goma (2014)
- Profiling in conflict-affected areas of eastern DRC (2015)
