APERÇU DE LA CRISE
Depuis l’élaboration du PRH en novembre 2016, la situation sécuritaire et humanitaire en RCA s'est considérablement détériorée. Plus de 500 000 personnes sont déplacées, un niveau qui n’avait été atteint qu’en août 2014 avant le déploiement de la mission onusienne de maintien de la paix (MINUSCA). Le nombre de personnes déplacées est passé de 402 000 en janvier 2017 à plus de 500 000 en mai 2017. Soit une augmentation de 25% en cinq mois et de plus de 30% depuis le lancement du PRH.
Heavy rainfall in the western Gulf of Guinea triggers flooding and damages to infrastructure
Africa Weather Hazards
Above-normal rainfall since July has elevated the risk for flooding in southeastern Sudan and parts of western Ethiopia. Heavy rainfall is forecast for mid to late August.
Despite increased moisture in early August, poorly distributed rainfall across parts of Eritrea, Ethiopia,
Djibouti, and western Somalia since early July have led to high seasonal moisture deficits.
• Insecurity and poor rains threaten harvests from the current cropping season.
• Food insecurity reported in Mvolo, many people surviving on wild food.
• Youth hard hit by the South Sudan violence and humanitarian crisis.
• Fighting and insecurity disrupt provision of humanitarian assistance and displace thousands in Upper Nile.
• Looting of humanitarian compounds and supplies increased in July.

La persistance de quelques poches d’insécurité, a provoqué de nouveaux déplacements de civiles victimes d’attaques de groupes armés. Cependant, une pluie diluvienne s’est abattue sur la ville de Bambari, localité située au centre du pays, provoquant ainsi l’effondrement de 78 maisons dans la ville.
