USAID builds foundations for durable peace in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and the Central African Republic (CAR) by supporting community-led efforts to manage, mitigate, and prevent conflict, countering armed groups that prey on civilians, and providing holistic services to survivors of gender-based violence. USAID Peace and Security staff also work across the portfolio to ensure that investments in other development sectors are sensitive to complex conflict dynamics and advance the goals of peace.
