IOM IN YOUR COUNTRY

Overview

The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) continues to face many challenges related to migration. There is a need to improve the collection of migration-related data, the development of migration policies – including long-term solutions for the over 1.6 million internally displaced persons (IDPs) – and the management of borders in a country that has most of the population living close to its borders, has a weak internal transport infrastructure and relies heavily on cross-border exchange. Because of its project implementation capacity, IOM in the DRC also plays an important role in the stabilization efforts of the international community in the Eastern DRC and implements projects aiming at the restoration of state authority and at creating conditions for the return of refugees and IDPs.

The IOM mission in the DRC currently has project activities and offices in the provinces of South Kivu, North Kivu, Province Orientale, and Equateur.
