Displacement and Return

Continued violence and insecurity remains an obstacle to return, yet limited assistance in the neighborhoods of origin may also be preventing the creation of positive pull-factors .

The Christian majority have indicated a lack of financial means and insecurity as the main obstacles to return. A lack of security forces, and home destruction/pillaged are the second most important obstacles to return.

CCCM cluster response strategy in CAR

  1. Facilitate returns through information dissemination and ensuring the effective participation of all population groups living in displacement sites

  2. Ensure that populations unable to return to their place of origin before the rainy season live in secure and dignified conditions in their current sites

  3. As a last resort, in Mpoko and other highly vulnerable sites, ensure that populations unable to return to their place of origin before the rainy season, live in secure and dignified conditions in alternative sites.

  4. Support in the identification of locations inside CAR where communities at risk would be willing to relocate and where security, safety and dignity can be guaranteed.

Challenges

Important challenges that will affect the population remaining in displacement sites after the start of the rainy season include soil conditions in most of Bangui’s displacement sites that have poor drainage properties, thus potentially increasing health risks during the rainy season. CCCM has been working with the Shelter/NFI and WASH clusters to ensure adequate site remediation measures are taken in sites that may remain open during the rainy season.
