In the context of the Democratic Republic of Congo, where the population can use few structured channels of expression and engagement with public decision-makers, this 5-year project aims to strengthen the consideration of the population' needs for public action. By establishing an inclusive and lasting dialogue between six main Congolese networks of Civil Society Organisations whose capacities will be strengthened, but also by improving the governance of their consultation frameworks at the regional level in the provinces and at the national level, the project will benefit the entire population of the DRC through its representatives, capable of asserting strong and unanimous positions.
