- Executive Summary
Six months after the post-election crisis, the security and socio-political situation has gradually improved in most parts of Côte d'Ivoire. This has enabled hundreds of thousands of internally displaced people (IDPs) and Ivorian refugees in countries of the region to return to their places of origin. However, security issues persist. They include armed attacks and abuse against civilians, as well as communal tensions particularly in the west and south-west. Côte d'Ivoire remains in a fragile recovery phase, strongly affected by the legacy of several crises that have taken place over the past decade or more. The latest crisis has severely exacerbated the situation. The process of reconstruction, peace-building and reconciliation will likely be long and difficult, as numerous challenges face President Ouattara’s Government. They include restoring a secure environment throughout the territory and along the borders; restoring the rule of law and justice; consolidating State services; reconciling and strengthening social cohesion; economic recovery; and the fight against poverty.
