The DR Congo Hub

In November 2018, under the initiative of the Hub development in DR Congo, around 20 potential members of DR Congo Hub met in Goma, together with a Start Network team representative, to create a vision for a more effective and efficient humanitarian system in DRC that is independent, proactive, community-led, with collective responsibility.

 

The DRC Hub has identified the following key priority areas of work:

 

- Exploring two cases studies of disaster anticipation (volcanic eruption in Goma) and emergency response ( Ebola outbreak in North Kivu and Ituri Provinces); 

- Organising a training session for risk financing,

- Testing the Start Network Tiered Due Diligence Framework

- Promoting communication and engagement of potential members of the Start Network DRC Hub

 

The Hub leadership in DR Congo

The DR Congo Hub Leadership team includes:

-  Cecile Kasoki, ActionAid

-  Yves Ngunzi Kahashi, CAFOD

-  Anuarite Kabuo, MIDEFEHOPS ASBL

-  Gang Karume, Rebuild Hope for Africa
