This project aims to provide a sustainable socio-economic recovery and to strengthen the capacities of prevention and resolution of local and internal conflicts of the population, while making the targeted communities more resilient to the impacts of external conflicts on the Miti-Hombo axis in Kalehe territory.

A consolidation phase is required of the three agencies (UNDP, FAO and UNICEF) previously involved on this axis.

The consolidation phase has the following objectives:

  • Reinforce the capacity for conflict resolution and prevention by local communities and governments
  • Restore sustainable livelihoods (economic and agricultural recovery)
  • Contribute to an environment conducive to human development in zones of chronic conflict. Improve access to social services of good quality, and strengthen the management capabilities of the infrastructure and of social services

What we have accomplished to date
