EU support for governance in the Democratic Republic of the Congo
Special Report No 9, 2013
The Democratic Republic of the Congo is one of the main beneficiaries of EU support, with about 1.9 billion euro of assistance provided between 2003 and 2011. In this report, the European Court of Auditors assessed if the Commission and the EEAS managed effectively EU support for governance and whether this support achieved its planned results. It focused on key areas of governance: the electoral process, justice and police, public finance management reforms and the decentralisation process. It concludes that EU support has been set within a generally sound cooperation strategy, addressing... main needs, but progress has been slow, uneven and overall limited. Sustainability was an unrealistic prospect for most projects examined. This was in part due to the fragile country context but also due to shortcomings in the way in which the Commission and the EEAS have managed their cooperation with the DRC.
