IDPs' decision-making in the DRC: Defining a framework to support resilience in humanitarian responses to multiple displacement

This report is designed to improve understanding of how multiple displacement in the Democratic Republic of Congo affects the resilience of internally displaced people.

The research, undertaken by International Alert together with the Norwegian Refugee Council, Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre and Climate Interactive, aims to increase people’s resilience 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.
