A complex emergency unfolded in the Kasai region, a central province in Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), due to intercommunity tensions and clashes between militia groups, the Congolese armed forces and self-defense groups, and between rival militia groups. This situation has led to systematic human rights violations that have raised significant protection concerns. Furthermore, the situation transformed into a large scale inter-community conflict that resulted into the displacement of more than 1.5 million civilians, forcing more than 30,000 refugees to flee to Lunda Norte, a northern province of Angola. 

IOM Angola has been providing safe and dignified transportation assistance to refugees that are being reallocated from temporary reception centers in Cacanda and Mussungue to Lovua. This has been done in close collaboration with the Angolan Ministry of Social Affairs, UNHCR, and other partners. 

In 2018, IOM will continue to provide safe and dignified transportation to refugees from the border between DRC and Angola to the reception centers and settlement sites if the country continues to register a large influx of Congolese refugees. Furthermore, in 2018, IOM will build on its significant community stabilization experience to develop social initiatives that will help improve the lives of refugees and hosting communities in resettlement areas in Lovua.   Through community stabilization programming, IOM seeks to assist governments and civil society to improve services, incorporate the needs of host and receiving communities, as well as to address the impacts of large-scale flows of refugees. Beyond the social component, community stabilization programming tends to be multi-sectoral, with a focus on inter alia: Improving access and provision of essential services such as health and education; Rehabilitation and augmentation of basic community infrastructure, including local markets; Supporting local governance capacity and economic recovery, including through cash-based programming and small-grants administration; Using community engagement to improve participation, social cohesion and peacebuilding; Consulting with all stakeholders to identify and implement community priorities and build trust in government.
