Armed group maps

The suluhu armed group mappings covering eastern Congo’s Kivu provinces have begun in mid-2013. The latest and sixth edition covers the situation by late 2017. Since 2015, suluhu collaborates with the Congo Research Group and the Kivu Security Tracker to further enhance accuracy and visual presentation.

CRG Mapping


Notes on the below, older mapping exercises:

The indicated areas represent zones of influence, not necessarily full control, for the indicated snapshots, i.e. points of time (click on the respective maps to see in full size). Changes in the subsequent maps reflect either changes on the ground or (for the time being) refinements relating to improved information. This exercise does not entail any claim of full accuracy and merely represents an approximate assessment of the situation with uncertainty and potential errors always remaining.
