East Africa & Great Lakes

DRC East Africa & Great Lakes (EAGL) operates in Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda in order to prevent displacement, support communities on the move and help people achieve durable solutions.

DRC East Africa & Great Lakes (EAGL) region provides urgent response at the onset of displacement and works with displacement-affected populations - both internally and across borders - to develop solutions to the challenges that they face.

DRC EAGL also works on addressing the root causes of displacement, working hand-in-hand with the community to build resilience and peace. 

The DRC EAGL Regional Office also supports initiatives focusing on mixed migration, durable solutions and borderlands, as well as advocacy and policy initiatives related to the displacement agenda at national, regional and global level.
