Democratic Republic of the Congo

Our work in DR Congo


The DRC Hub works to build a model of a humanitarian system that is more inclusive, independent, proactive, locally-led and with shared collective responsibilities. We bring together nearly 60 local, national and international organisations, with future plans to include the public sector, private sector and academia.

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 DR Congo Hub Leadership team includes:

-  Cecile Kasoki, ActionAid

-  Yves Ngunzi Kahashi, CAFOD

-  Anuarite Kabuo, MIDEFEHOPS ASBL
