Evidence, Analysis and Coordination Programme (EACP), DRC

Country / date: Democratic Republic of Congo, April 2013 – April 2017


Project objective(s): To challenge and improve DFID DRC’s understanding the political economy context of DRC as it relates to development programming. 

Project outcome(s): Integrity, as part of a larger consortium, has produced a number of separate ‘political economy analysis’ (PEA) studies on different provinces (including Kasai Occidental and Equateur) and sectors (including mining and political governance) to feed into DFID programming across DRC. The findings from the studies are presented on a periodic basis to the DFID team in Kinshasa and shared more broadly with other key stakeholders. The research has identified various barriers to, or key enablers of, change based on an analysis of how power is distributed among different actors. The programme has also increased the knowledge and expertise that DFID is able to access, through a large pool of experts with expertise ranging across health, natural resource management, security and justice and economic development across all provinces.
