Located in Central Africa, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is the second largest country in Africa with a total area of 2,345,409 km². Since the 1990s, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and particularly the eastern provinces North Kivu, South Kivu and Orientale have been shattered by one of the deadliest conflicts in the world.
In this post-conflict situation in Eastern DRC, where large numbers of internally displaced people and refugees are waiting return to their places of origin, disputes over scarcely available land has the potential to generate new outbreak of large-scale conflict.
