VIOLENCE AGAINST AID WORKERS PERSISTS
Twenty-one incidents against aid workers were recorded in November. They included robberies, threats, physical assault and abduction. Across the country, 363 violent incidents against humanitarian organizations were reported between January and November, and more than 25 aid groups were forced to suspend operations due to armed attacks and insecurity. Two-thirds of the incidents were robberies, breaks-in, lootings and carjacking.

The Global risk analysis outlines 18 contexts where a significant deterioration is expected to occur within the next six to nine months, leading to a spike in humanitarian needs.
ACAPS analysts conduct daily monitoring and independent analysis of more than 150 countries to support evidence-based decision-making in the humanitarian sector.
The knowledge acquired in this process enables analysts to develop a solid understanding of crisis dynamics and identify trends as well as potential risks, which enabled the selection of these 18 contexts:
Regional Flow Monitoring Network

Humanitarian Affairs Official Says Embattled Cameroon Regions Witnessing One of Africa’s Fastest-Growing Displacement Crises
Central and West African countries must develop strategies with which to tackle the root causes of insurgency, the senior United Nations official in the region told the Security Council today as it considered the activities of the United Nations regional office.
OVERVIEW OF THE CONTEXT
World Humanitarian Data and Trends presents global- and country-level data-and-trend analysis about humanitarian crises and assistance. Its purpose is to consolidate this information and present it in an accessible way, providing policymakers, researchers and humanitarian practitioners with an evidence base to support humanitarian policy decisions and provide context for operational decisions.
Intercommunal clashes in Alindao and Batangafo kill and displace civilians, damage infrastructure
Countrywide insecurity continues to endanger aid workers
Number of severely food-insecure people in CAR increases by nearly 20 percent between March and September
Le Tchad fait face à des crises humanitaires interconnectées, dans un contexte de pauvreté chronique et de faible développement. La situation sécuritaire dans les pays voisins continue d’engendrer des mouvements sporadiques de personnes vers le Tchad, en particulier au sud en provenance de la République Centrafricaine (RCA), ainsi que des déplacements internes dans la province du Lac. En outre le retour volontaire des réfugiés se poursuit, avec 1 085 réfugiés soudanais rapatriés au Darfour et près de 4 000 réfugiés tchadiens du Soudan dans le Sila.
West and Central Africa’s (WCA) population is predominantly young. More than 64% are under the age of 24. Young people are a tremendous resource for the region – but their potential will only be realized when the right investments in their education, health, skills and empowerment are made.

Cette augmentation résulte essentiellement des activités d’enregistrement continu dans les camps et en milieu urbain.
Par ailleurs, il est à noter la reprise des convois de rapatriement volontaire vers le soudan. À ce jour, 840 personnes sont retournées avec l’appui de HCR et ses partenaires en 2018.
