Democratic Republic of Congo
Despite its natural resources and agricultural potential, the Democratic Republic of Congo has major food insecurity. Many villages in the east of the country have been pushed into deep poverty and torn by the years of war violence. In the cases of unrest, the cattle are often looted first and, moreover, the inhabitants have to flee regularly. Of course, that does not help to create a flourishing agriculture.
