Job Description

The Pool conflict has caused internal displacement of populations, in general, which has considerably increased humanitarian needs. However, since the ceasefire signed in December 2017 and the “collection” of weapons in August 2018, there has been a massive return of populations. It is estimated that more than 160,000 people in 2018 had moved to neighboring departments (Bouenza, Lékoumou, Niari and Brazzaville) and within the country who gradually returned to the Pool department. Unfortunately, the existing limited resources have led to focus support only on humanitarian action and community dialogue which are still insufficient to have a real impact on the economic recovery of the population.

It is important to remember that armed clashes between security forces and Ninjas Nsiloulou fighters caused extensive material and human damage. Some villages were destroyed as well as agricultural assets and social infrastructure. This has increased the vulnerability of men, women, youth and children in terms of food security, nutrition, health, education and protection.

To this end, the UNDP has mobilized funding from Japan to help strengthen social cohesion involving at-risk youth and vulnerable women.

Among the activities planned under the project the financing of income-generating activities (IGA) for returning communities and ex-combatants.

In this momentum, the UNDP on this Japanese funding has already provided support to several groups whose activities affect the agro-pastoral sector, which represents a first batch of beneficiaries and aims to do more.

To better understand the results obtained through the implementation of this project, the UNDP wishes to create a database.
