Other Household Survey [hh/oth]
In response to these alarming contexts, the Rome-based United Nations agencies (RBAs), which include the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the World Food Programme (WFP) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), with the support of the Government of Canada, are implementing a programme to strengthen livelihood resilience in the contexts of protracted crises in DRC, Niger and Somalia. This 5-year programme, from March 2017 to December 2021, seeks to support interventions in the areas of resilience, livelihoods, food security, nutrition, and sustainable agriculture. It thus contributes to sustainably improving food security and building the resilience to shocks and stressors of men, women, boys and girls, and members of food insecure households in these regions affected by protracted and recurrent crises.

In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the programme was implemented in two health zones in Rutshuru territory (Rutshuru and Rwanguba health zones) in North Kivu province. Households in the health zones of Kirotshe, Masisi, and Mweso in Masisi territory serve as the comparison group in the programme impact evaluation. Between July-August 2017, baseline survey data is collected from 1724 households, 1186 in Rutshuru territory and 538 in Masisi territory to establish the baseline situation in relation to the desired changes and baseline values of the programme indicators. To assess the impact of the programme on beneficiaries after at least two years of implementation of activities, the second phase of data collection was carried out in 2019 over the same period and among the same households as the baseline survey.
