Zones 1 (South-Western Uganda, North-Western Rwanda and Eastern DRC) and 10 (Eastern DRC, North-Western Burundi and South-Western Rwanda) in the Great Lakes Region (GLR) are currently the most volatile. They are characterized by three levels of violent conflicts: State-centric conflicts, State against rebel groups conflicts and rebel against local communities. While the epicenter of the conflicts is currently in the Eastern DRC, this does not preclude rebel attacks directed against neighboring states. It is this latter factor that engenders tensions in zones 1 and 10 of the IC/GLR.
