Depuis 2022, la région orientale de la République démocratique du Congo (RDC), en particulier le Nord-Kivu, est en proie à un conflit dévastateur qui s'est intensifié et est devenu de plus en plus complexe au fil du temps, avec le potentiel d'atteindre des niveaux sans précédent dans le Nord-Kivu. Cette crise se caractérise par une multitude d'acteurs armés en conflit, une importante population déplacée et une population encore plus importante en manque d'aide humanitaire. Le conflit actuel entre le groupe M23 et les Forces armées de la République démocratique du Congo (FARDC) et leurs alliés a été une source majeure de violence et d'instabilité dans la région.

Le début du déploiement du personnel de la force régionale de la Communauté de développement de l’Afrique australe (SADC) a été signalé depuis le 28 décembre 2023. Cette initiative intervient dans un contexte marqué par une recrudescence des combats entre les Forces armées de la République démocratique du Congo (FARDC) et ses alliés d’une part, et le groupe M23 d’autre part. L’exacerbation de tension depuis les semaines passée a provoqué un déplacement continu des populations de communautés hôtes et de personnes déplacées préalablement installées dans des sites ou dans des familles d’accueil sur l’axe Sake-Bweremana vers la province du Sud-Kivu en territoire de Kalehe et vers Goma et ses environs. Des nouveaux sites et des besoins humanitaires urgents ont été créé en dépit des interventions déjà amorcées.

Depuis le début de la crise, l'OIM, par le biais de la DTM continue à mener une série d'évaluations rapides, y compris le suivi des urgences (EET/ERM), l'analyse des crises et enregistrement avec priorité de répondre aux besoins immédiats d'information en vue de comprendre la dynamique des déplacements et les besoins. Ce rapport présente les résultats des évaluations menées dans les différentes zones de déplacement et de retour du 13 au 21 février 2024.

Since 2022, the eastern region of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), in particular North Kivu, has been gripped by a devastating conflict that has intensified and become increasingly complex over time, with the potential to reach unprecedented levels in the province. This crisis is characterised by an abundance of armed actors in the conflict, a large-scale displacement and an increasing number of population in need of humanitarian aid. The ongoing conflict between the M23 group and the Forces Armées de la République démocratique du Congo (FARDC) and their allies has been a major source of violence and instability in the region. The start of the deployment of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) regional force has been announced for 28 December 2023. This initiative comes as a response to renewed fighting between the FARDC and its allies on the one hand, and the M23 group on the other.

The period from 13 to 19 February 2024 was particularly characterised by a precarious lull in the territory of Nyiragongo and Rutshuru on the one hand and the continuation of hostilities in the territory of Masisi on the other. Heavy artillery projectiles continue to cause human damage in Sake and MubambiroSince the beginning of the crisis, IOM, through its Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM), has continued conducting a series of rapid assessments, including emergency monitoring (EET/ERM), crisis analysis and registration with the aim of responding to immediate information needs in order to understand displacement dynamics.

This report presents the results of assessments carried out in the various displacement and return areas between 13 and 21 February 2024.
