Central African Crisis: Regional Humanitarian Snapshot (as of 17 March 2014)

from UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs
Published on 17 Mar 2014 View Original

The security situation throughout the country remains volatile. Inter-community attacks continue, notably against the Muslim communities, driving-up the number of refugees and evacuees fleeing to Cameroon, Chad, Republic of Congo and the DRC. Grave protection concerns remain in the capital and the provinces.

Humanitarian operations continue to be constrained by severe lack of funding, active fighting and attacks on populations, aid workers and assets; the impending rainy season will further compound access limitations.

Areas of concern continue to be (1) the border of CAR and Cameroon; (2) the road from Bangui to the border with Cameroon; (3) the road connecting Bangui to all towns in the North and Northwest and (4) inter-provincial travel in the North and Northwest.
