IDPs' decision-making in the DRC

Defining a framework to support resilience in humanitarian responses to multiple displacement

This report is the first in a series of thematic research papers designed to improve understanding of how multiple displacement in DRC affects the resilience of those affected.

The research, undertaken by International Alert together with the Norwegian Refugee Council, Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre and Climate Interactive, aims to increase the resilience of people in the face of repeated displacement and to improve humanitarian responses to this phenomenon.

Our analysis draws on data collected in Masisi and Uvira territories of North and South Kivu provinces in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) between September and December 2014. We carried out 1,275 surveys - 672 in Masisi and 603 in Uvira - 80 focus group discussions and 77 key informant interviews. The research forms the first part of a three-year project, and this paper sets outs the insights gained.
