Improving Field Implementation of the Voluntary Principles for Security and Human Rights in South Kivu - DRC

Security challenges in the extractive sector of the South Kivu Province in Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) are manifold, ranging from the presence of armed groups on mining sites to risks posed by under-capacitated elements of the security forces. To respond to the need of improved field implementation of the Voluntary Principles in this resource-rich province, the SHRIM enables a project implemented jointly by DCAF and its local partner Observatoire de la Gouvernance et Paix. It focuses, among other objectives, on setting up a multistakeholder working group which can identify and address security and human rights related risks in the province.
