USAID and Eastern Congo Initiative Partner to Conduct Landscape Analysis of CBOs in DRC

Posted: August 12, 2013

In the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), one of the principle obstacles to delivering effective support to community-based organizations (CBOs) is the lack of precise information on organizations and their capacity to effectively meet the most pressing needs of their community. In response, in 2011, with the support of USAID*, Eastern Congo Initiative (ECI) conducted an unprecedented landscape analysis of CBOs across Maniema, North Kivu, Orientale, and South Kivu provinces. The result is a first- time report that gives policy leaders, investors, and analysts much-needed insight into the workings and nature of work being done to create a sustainable and successful society in eastern Congo. Through its ground-breaking Landscape Analysis of Community-Based Organizations, ECI has laid the groundwork for augmenting US foreign assistance in the eastern Congo. Serving as a model of strategic investment in the region, ECI's assessment is a resource that can shape future engagement and elevate awareness and commitment to the region within the larger development and donor community.
