An NGO Perspective on the Response to the Humanitarian Crisis in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

Upon the invitation of the INGO Forum in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, InterAction, represented by Julien Schopp, Director of Humanitarian Practice, traveled to the D.R.C. from April 16 through April 28, 2017. The mission comprised visits to Kinshasa and Goma, reviewing humanitarian practice and policy issues, including inter-agency response leadership; NGO coordination structures; as well as broader issues related to humanitarian communication.

Within this report, InterAction provides observations, key findings and recommendations for the D.R.C. humanitarian response and the wider Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC).
