Clashes between armed groups and attacks against humanitarian organisations have a negative impact on humanitarian space and operations are becoming increasingly complex to organize.

This is expected to substantially increase the cost of WFP emergency operations in Central African Republic.
The Democratic Republic of the Congo is impacted by sporadic security-related incidents as reported in various territories and provinces around the country.
