Clashes between armed groups and intercommunal tensions continue to displace civilians and restrict humanitarian access in CAR. In addition, the UN recorded 304 security incidents affecting humanitarian workers between January and September.
Heavy rainfall and flooding had displaced approximately 20,000 people in Bamingui-Bangoran Prefecture as of mid-September; relief actors are preparing for additional rains and disruptive floods in the coming weeks.
Food assistance needs are expected to remain high through early 2021 due to localized conflict and COVID-19-related price increases.
