The complex crisis in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) continues to fuel urgent humanitarian needs. This is particularly the case in the east of the country where, despite the official end of the war in 2003, conflict continues and has escalated since the end of 2008. South Kivu province was highlighted as a priority area for humanitarian response by the 2010 UN Humanitarian Action Plan, with food insecurity being one of the key issues.

This case study explains the factors that have contributed to that food insecurity, details Tearfund’s response in terms of working with village development committees and providing training and vouchers for tools and seeds, and shares some of the positive impacts that have occurred.
