As humanitarian challenges change, so must DRC. Therefore, and in addition to the humanitarian principles that govern our work, DRC has identified five organisational priorities that must be reflected in our programmatic work and all internal and external relations.
DRC commits to improve our governance structures to ensure that the voices, interests, and capacities of the people affected by displacement and conflict are more recognised and respected in DRC and in the world.
DRC commits to support people affected by conflict and displacement by building self-sustainable local capacities and sustainable local development into our programming and operations.
DRC commits to respond to the global climate crisis and environmental degradation by increasing the adaptive capacities of people affected by conflict and displacement and to ensuring that our own conduct is nature-positive.
DRC commits to increase its ability to cultivate digital opportunities in high-quality interventions that add value for displaced communities.
DRC commits to address the power dynamics which result in marginalization and exclusion within our organisation, programmes and beyond.
