Crisis in the Kasai Provinces, DR Congo
In January 2016, in Dibaya, Central Kasaï, a dispute erupted over complex claims regarding customary law, natural resources, and land issues. Since then, a multilayered conflict has developed in which over 1.4 million people have been displaced, and more than 3,300 in the greater Kasaï region have died between August 2016 and June 2017. The population, particularly the children, live in a state of deep shock and panic, and many are used as combatants and exposed to sexual violence, torture, and family separation.
