USAID invests in key aspects of the Congolese economy—agriculture, minerals, and energy—to promote broad-based economic growth to reduce poverty and enhance food security. The DRC is also a Feed the Future aligned country. USAID’s agriculture assistance focuses on livelihoods development to improve household income so communities are more stable, resilient, and better able to participate in the market.

USAID strengthens a foundation for durable peace in all geographies where USAID/DRC manages programming. We oversee conflict mitigation and social protection activities in Eastern Congo, CAR, and the Mbomou-Uele border region (southeastern CAR & northeastern DRC). USAID also provides thought leadership to incorporate conflict sensitivity into programming across geographic and technical areas.

USAID is proud to announce a new $23 million, five-year award: Feed the Future Democratic Republic of the Congo Value Chains activity. The goal is to increase household incomes and access to nutrient rich crops by linking 60,000 small-holder farmers in South Kivu to markets and suppliers. The activity will increase specialty coffee production and exports to increase farmer incomes, while also marketing nutritious crops such as beans to reduce malnutrition.
