DRC and the Great Lakes Region of Africa (New York)

July 30th

Between 30 July and 5 August 2014, the Conflict Prevention and Peace Forum convened a series of expert brainstormings with members of the DRC Affinity Group on the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the Great Lakes Region. The meetings were meant to help inform a regional risk assessment and conflict analysis, the next steps in the implementation of the Peace, Security and Cooperation Framework (PSCF) and in support of the Security Council’s call for a broader strategic review of UN engagement in the DRC.
