République Centrafricaine (RCA) Matrice de Suivi des Déplacements (DTM) Rapport 7 Juillet 2019

International Organization for Migration IOM, Eds.: DTM, (2019)


La République Centrafricaine (RCA) est depuis 2013, en proie à un conflit ayant causé la perte de milliers de vies humaines et engendré des déplacements massifs de sa population. Sept ans après le début de la crise, l’insécurité demeure en RCA, les nombreux groupes armés présents sur le territoire conservant leur emprise sur la plupart du pays et des actes de violence continuant de cibler les populations civiles. Le 6 Février 2019, les parties belligérantes ont signé l’Accord Politique pour la Paix et la Réconciliation (APPR) à Khartoum, marquant le point de départ d’un processus intégré de paix dans le pays et censé mettre fin aux hostilités et violences dans le pays.

Apercu des besoins humanitaires 2019

UNOCHA , Eds.: OCHA, (2019)


La crise humanitaire que traverse la Centrafrique demeure complexe. Un total de 621 035 personnes sont déplacées à l’intérieur du pays et 572 984 personnes dans les pays voisins à la fin du mois d’août 2018. Le nombre de personnes dans le besoin est passé de 2,5 millions à 2,9 millions dont 1,6 million en besoin d’assistance aiguë et immédiate, soit une augmentation de 16% par rapport à l’année 2017. Cette augmentation est la conséquence directe de la multiplication des foyers de conflit dans plusieurs régions du pays, du nombre croissant d’incidents sécuritaires affectant les civils et les humanitaires, et du manque de ressources nécessaires qui mettent en péril les efforts de restauration des services de base. Les conséquences humanitaires de cette crise sont ressenties dans les domaines de la protection, du déplacement forcé des populations et de l’accès aux services sociaux de base.

Perspectives of non-state armed groups in the Central Africa Republic

Conciliation Resources working together for peace, Eds.: CR , (2016)


Since the current crisis erupted in 2013, the Central African Republic (CAR) has received a level of international attention unprecedented in its recent turbulent history. Huge efforts have been made by national government, the United Nations (UN) and external donors, as well as communities and civil society actors to pull the country back from armed conflict.

The African Union´s challenges - Central Africa Republic

International Crisis Group, Eds.: International Crisis Group, (2019)


4. Central African Republic Clashes throughout 2018 in the capital Bangui and a number of major towns illustrate the deadly threat posed by armed groups – a mix of pro-government militias, ex-rebels, bandits and local “self-defence” units – that control much of the country. MINUSCA, the UN peacekeeping force, has failed to neutralise these groups and, as a result, is mistrusted by the general public. Likewise, the national army, slowly being deployed in parts of the country, has been unable to constrain the armed groups’ predatory activities. The humanitarian situation remains dire, with more than one million people internally displaced or fleeing to neighbouring countries and 2.5 million in need of assistance, according to the UN.
