La République centrafricaine fait face à une détérioration persistante de la situation humanitaire depuis septembre 2016. Cette aggravation se matérialise par une multiplication de foyers de tension, de nouvelles vagues de déplacements et une augmentation vertigineuse des besoins humanitaires.
Elle se caractérise aussi par une réduction drastique de l’espace humanitaire. La présence des groupes armés et la violence qu’ils exercent sur les civils ainsi que les pics de violence que leurs affrontements entrainent ont un impact délétère sur l’accès humanitaire.
