La situation en République Centrafricaine (RCA) et dans les pays voisins constitue un défi majeur pour la communauté internationale. L’instabilité qui prévaut dans la région (Tchad, République Démocratique du Congo (RDC), Darfur) a en effet d’importantes répercussions sur la RCA.
The Central African Republic (CAR) has suffered from repeated armed conflict over the past decade. CAR remains one of the poorest countries with some of the lowest socio-economic indicators despite its economic potential and vast wealth of natural resources.
With a population of 4.6 million (approximately seven inhabitants per km2) and an annual population growth rate of 1.8% CAR continues to face development challenges and unprecedented politico-military instability.
The Central African Republic (CAR) is facing one of the most silent and forgotten emergencies in the world. This ongoing chronic crisis has substantial humanitarian repercussions that increase the population’s vulnerability. This chronic vulnerability varies in intensity by region and is exacerbated by minimal access to basic social services, presence of destabilizing armed actors and frequency of localized natural disasters.
