Fragility and development in the Democratic Republic of Congo inquiry

Inquiry status: open

Accepting written evidence, the deadline for submissions to this inquiry is Monday 6 June 2016.  

Scope of the inquiry

UK aid is estimated to account for about £306m of development assistance to DRC. In DFID’s most recent operational plan for the country, which expires this year, the Department identified that the scale of the challenge in DRC is enormous. It laid out its priorities over the last few years, including strengthening the rule of law, humanitarian intervention, transforming the state’s ability to resource and deliver services, economic development, and empowering women and girls.

The International Development Committee is inquiring into all aspects of DFID’s work in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), and is particularly interested in how effective the UK Government's work on peace-building, democracy, and strengthening and building resilience into governance structures and institutions.
