An upsurge in violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s Grand Kasai region has led to the displacement of more than 1.4m people. In order to better understand the background to the crisis and to ensure a proper programmatic and advocacy response World Vision and a number of other NGOs interviewed dozens of people affected by the crisis as well as civil society organisations, INGOs and UN agencies with insight into the context. The research was conducted using World Vision’s Good Enough Context Analysis for Rapid Response approach. Included in this report are the potential scenarios arising from this crisis and analysis of the background. The analysis was conducted in order to ensure a rapid response to an humanitarian crisis that is deeply impacting children and communities.
