Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,
I would like to thank the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees for the invitation to provide you with an update on the humanitarian situation inside the Central African Republic at today’s launch of the 2015 Regional Refugee Response Plan for CAR Refugees.
Since January, humanitarian access continues to be hindered by various constraints; particularly violence against civilians including aid workers/assets, interference in the implementation of humanitarian activities and active hostilities. Since the beginning of 2014, more than 1,267 security incidents have been recorded of which 138 or 11 per cent were direct violence against humanitarian organisations. In 2015, until 21 January, 31 security incidents with 4 or 13% against aid workers specifically humanitarian workers kidnapping.
2.7 million people are still in need based on 2015’s humanitarian Strategic Response Plan for the Central African Republic. The relative severity requirement by sub-prefecture shows that the humanitarian situation one year after the outbreak of the crisis is still important and continuing to be despite the progress of humanitarian actors deployment on the field and sectoral response already made over of 2014.
(Bangui, 26 January 2015): The Senior Humanitarian Coordinator, Claire Bourgeois, visited Batangafo, in north Central African Republic on 23 January, to assess the increasing protection needs in the area caused by a continuous influx of newly displaced persons (IDP). There are now more than 30,000 IDPs in the main site of the city.
The humanitarian community in CAR strongly condemns the abduction of humanitarian workers.
Nearly 10,000 Central Africans have fled to the Democratic Republic of the Congo since 16 December.
Malnutrition persists among the nearly 500 members of the Fulani (aka “Pheul”) community displaced in Yaloké.
