The disputed election towards the end of 2010 in Côte d’Ivoire sparked a series of violent incidences and had developed into an armed conflict, with heavy fighting in several of the regions in the country. Since the beginning of the crisis hundreds of thousands of people have been forced to flee the violence and leave their homes. Over 135,000 Ivorian refugees have been reported in neighbouring countries, most notably Liberia, while over 800,000 people have been internally displaced and are urgently in need of humanitarian assistance. Due to the prevailing situation, the Humanitarian Country Team (HCT) has called for the activation of clusters including the Logistics Cluster.
