Crisis levels of food insecurity will continue into the coming months due to the effects of conflict
The conflict in Central African Republic continues to severely disrupt livelihoods and has led to the internal displacement of about 600,000 people or 13 percent of the country’s total population. Despite humanitarian interventions, poor households and IDPs in areas worst affected by the conflict, including the northwest and west-central regions and Bangui (Figure 1), have limited food access and are facing food consumption gaps. For these populations, Crisis (IPC Phase 3) levels of food insecurity are expected between now and the next harvest (July to October 2014, depending on the area). Well-targeted and appropriate humanitarian assistance is required to save lives and restore livelihoods.
