Despite its abundant natural resources and agricultural potential, the Democratic Republic of Congo has its share of food insecurity problems. The armed conflicts that prevail, particularly in the east of the country, do not promote the efficient use of these resources. They force the people to abandon their homes and fields, thereby hindering the development of a prosperous agriculture industry. Small livestock does not require a large surface area and can be easily protected from looting. They are therefore an essential pillar in efforts to rebuild the country.
