CAR, Refugees

Despite several peace agreements were reached between the Government, armed groups and civil society, reports of violence and insecurity in some parts of the Central African Republic.

Inside CAR, the humanitarian situation significantly deteriorated during the second half of 2017. Armed violence and attacks against humanitarians and peacekeepers have provoked a 50 per cent increase in the number of internally displaced people – bringing the total number from 400,000 in May to 600,000 by the end of the year. The total number of refugees and internally displaced is the highest ever recorded for CAR – almost one-fourth of the population of around 4.6 million. (UNHCR, 2018)
