The EUSEC RD Congo mission, which has been deployed in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) since June 2005, reflects the EU's ongoing commitment to the Congolese people in terms of reforming their army. 

Working closely with the other contributing members of the international community, EUSEC RD Congo provides practical support for security‑sector reform in the DRC by giving advice and assistance directly to the competent Congolese authorities. Advisers have been working with the military authorities in Kinshasa and the staffs of the military regions via the mission's detachment in Goma and the combined EUSEC-FARDC mobile team.


Since the original mandate, which aimed to support integration into the Armed Forces of the DRC (FARDC) and to run the "Chain of payments" project for ensuring the security of payments to the military, the mission has expanded its activities in this area with a view to modernising both administration and human resources management. It has also diversified its activities, providing assistance to its Congolese partners in the field of troop training.
