ACAPS: Violence and food insecurity likely to increase in CAR

Source: Assessment Capacities Project
Country: Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of the Congo

The continued presence of groups responsible for the conflict indicates further violence is likely. Long-term displacement could disrupt planting activities and lead to further food insecurity.

OVERVIEW

A spike in fighting over resources occurred in Alindao, Basse-Kotto over 7–9 May, with at least 56 people killed and over 11,000 displaced. In nearby Bangassou, Mbomou prefecture, armed groups killed at least 26 people, with at least 3,000 displaced in CAR, 2,750 fleeing to DRC and 25,000 in need of humanitarian assistance. Government response is lacking and there is no evidence of humanitarian assistance reaching affected populations, excluding emergency healthcare.
