The surge in violence in C.A.R. and its spill-over effects in Cameroon, Chad, DRC and RoC led the humanitarian community to revise the 2017 Humanitarian Response Plan, which now requires USD 497 million instead of USD 399.5 (an increase of 24 percent), but is only 27 percent funded.

Our methodology uses 9 indicators, grouped under 3 categories:
Access of humanitarian actors to affected population
Access of people in need to humanitarian aid
Security and physical constraints Each category is measured through proxy indicators, such as violence against personnel, denial of needs, or active hostilities.
Data is collected at the country level and may therefore not show disparities between sub-regions.

Lors d'un point de presse ce mardi à Genève, la porte-parole de l'UNICEF en RCA s'est indignée de la résurgence des violences dans plusieurs localités de l'intérieur de ce pays d'Afrique centrale.

Mauritania is now out of the ranking
