    Project Summary:

    The goal of the Solutions for Peace and Recovery (SPR) program, implemented in eastern DRC (North Kivu and South Kivu), is to increase social cohesion through inclusion of women and marginalized groups in community-based conflict analysis, prevention, resolution, and recovery. SPR provides USAID/DRC with the ability to respond to dynamic, time-sensitive, and/or unique opportunities to reinforce peace and prevent or assist in the recovery from conflict in areas that are strategically important to the stability of eastern DRC. Three hypotheses support the SPR's approach towards achieving the project goal. First, if communities in eastern Congo are enabled to analyze conflict, they will develop processes that will produce effective solutions. Second, if Congolese women and marginalized groups are given the skills and opportunities to participate in community-based decision-making, their participation will result in better and more sustainable solutions. Third, if community decision-making is inclusive and participatory, it will result in better solutions and greater social cohesion. These hypotheses or theories of change drive SPR project objectives:

    • Community stakeholders identify and accept and solutions to specific drivers of conflict,
    • Participatory solutions are implemented, and
    • Resources for community development are more inclusively allocated.

    Résumé du projet :

    L'objectif du programme Solutions for Peace and Recovery (SPR), mis en œuvre dans l'est de la RDC (Nord-Kivu et Sud-Kivu), est de faire grandir la cohésion sociale par l'inclusion des femmes et des groupes marginalisés dans l'analyse, la prévention, la résolution et le redressement des conflits au niveau communautaire. SPR fournit à l'USAID/RDC la capacité de répondre à des opportunités dynamiques, urgentes et/ou uniques pour renforcer la paix et de prévenir ou d'aider au relèvement suite à un conflit dans des zones qui sont stratégiquement importantes pour la stabilité de l'est de la RDC. Trois hypothèses soutiennent la démarche de SPR. D'abord, si les communautés de le Congo de l'est sont capables d'analyser le conflit, elles pourront développer les processus nécessaires pour le résoudre. Ensuite, si les femmes et autres groupes marginalisés du Congo sont équipés avec les compétences et les opportunités pour participer dans la prise de décision au sein de la communauté, les solutions seront enrichies par cette participation. Enfin, si la prise de décision communautaire est inclusive et participative, elle produira de meilleures solutions et une cohésion sociale supérieure. Ces hypothèses guident les objectifs SPR :

    • Les parties prenantes de la communauté identifient et acceptent les solutions aux causes de conflit,
    • Les solutions participatives sont mises en place, et
    • Les ressources pour le développement communautaire sont distribuées de manière inclusive.
