Disarmament, Demobilisation and Reintegration (DDR)

Centre Résolution Conflits (CRC) has been developing and implementing its grassroots disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration (DDR) approach in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) for over 10 years. With many larger-scale programmes focussing more on the disarmament and demobilisation aspects, CRC has been placing increasing emphasis on reintegration processes.

This project has been funded by the John Ellerman and Barings Foundations; it built on learning from previous projects, introduced a micro-finance pilot and extended the model to 38 communities in three territories in Ituri District. Its key aims were to reinforce stability by improving infrastructure and developing livelihoods, in order to encourage the return of internally displaced persons (IDPs) and to build capacity for conflict resolution.
