Field Support Services are managed locally and provide essential support in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to assist in the planning, delivery and monitoring of Canada’s international development assistance to that country. The services include expert advice on: (1) socio-economic policies; (2) analyzing development issues, needs, and strategies; (3) technical support; (4) project monitoring; and (5) logistical and administrative services.

Expected results 

Although initiatives such as these serve as important mechanisms to support the effective delivery of Canada’s development assistance, no direct development outcomes are attributable to them.
