SA’s Post-Conflict Development and Peacebuilding Experiences in the DRC Lessons Learnt

"This policy brief analyses South Africa’s post-conflict development and peacebuilding engagements in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). It identifies lessons learnt that could inform the policy and programming development of the envisaged South African Development Partnership Agency (SADPA). South Africa has engaged substantively in peacemaking and peacekeeping, activities that are well documented. However, its post-conflict development and peacebuilding activities have yet to be systematically mapped and analysed. This analysis of the DRC highlights the need for better strategic planning, coherency and sustainability to increase impact and effectiveness."
