As early as June 2006, due to a lack of funding CONADER "has closed all orientation centers (COs) and is using mobile units to handle the final wave of demobilization (under the plan de relance), which is supposed to be completed by 31 December 2007." (43) As noted by Thomas Turner, "the process was under-resourced with non- or minimal payment of salaries to military personnel and insufficient supplies of food, water and medical equipment to the integration points (centres de brassage), many of which had poor facilities.
From 2006--present SSR has all but stalled with the closure of the six national brassage centers and the National Commission for Disarmament, Demobilization and Reinsertion (CONADER) due to a lack of adequate funding and resources.
(35.) In 2003/2004, the CONADER office in North Kivu province, for example, argued that they would need enough funding up front to carry out a project of integration that would last for ten years.
Using radio and television messages, posters, flyers, and t-shirts, in 2006, CONADER conducted extensive public education campaigns that informed the military that child soldiering is illegal, and attempted to dissuade children from joining armed groups and convince families and communities to reintegrate demobilized children.
The major problem in this regard was the provision of reintegration support, which stemmed from poor technical, logistical and financial co-ordination and management by CONADER and the UNDP.
In 2005, CONADER and MONUC sensitized newly integrated FARDC troops--both commanders and rank and file soldiers--on the illegality of using child soldiers.
CONADER participated with a number of other organizations in the development of a national public awareness campaign regarding the use of child soldiers.
