    Central African Republic: Humanitarian Response Plan 2024 2024
    Also available in:

    The Central African Republic is one of the world’s ten poorest countries, with around 7 in 10 Central Africans living below the poverty line on less than USD 2.15 per day. Armed conflict, violence linked to transhumance and floods are the main shocks triggering population displacements and increasing vulnerabilities in the country. About half of the population is projected to be acutely food insecure in the coming months. Most live in rural areas, relying on agriculture for their food and income. They urgently need support to restore their production and improve their food security.

    Central African Republic | Response overview (May 2021) 2021

    In the Central African Republic, results of the updated Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) projection analysis (May 2021) indicate that 2.29 million people – about half of the total population – are in high acute food insecurity (IPC Phase 3+, April–August 2021), of whom over 630 000 in Phase 4. The main drivers behind high levels of food insecurity in the country are mainly natural disasters, the impact of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) on agricultural supply chains and food trade, food price spikes, plant pests and animal diseases, poor access to quality inputs and productive assets, poverty, as well as insufficient food consumption. Failure to immediately address the rising needs will result in the additional loss of lives, increased vulnerabilities and higher levels of the food insecurity, as well as risks of weakening the long-standing ability of the humanitarian actors to stay in the country and deliver in an extremely complex and dangerous environment. With about half of the population unable to meet their daily minimum food needs, it is crucial to continue to provide livelihoods assistance in order to strengthen the resilience of vulnerable populations.

    Democratic Republic of the Congo | 2021 Humanitarian Response Plan 2021

    In 2020, the humanitarian situation in the Democratic Republic of the Congo deteriorated significantly amid persistent armed conflict in the eastern regions and increased violence in several other parts of the country. While structural issues remain, such as extreme poverty, limited access to basic services and weak social protection systems, the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has aggravated the situation, deeply affecting the livelihoods of vulnerable households. Its socioeconomic impact has exacerbated existing inequalities, triggered higher unemployment rates, led to worse living conditions and increased protection risks, especially for women and girls. Providing immediate agricultural support to vulnerable households in time for the upcoming planting season will allow them to produce their own food and generate income.
