FAO’s role in the 2014 Central African Republic Revised Strategic Response Plan

FAO’s role in the 2014 Central African Republic Revised Strategic Response Plan

20/06/2014

In 2013, the situation in the Central African Republic (CAR) moved from a protracted crisis to an acute and complex emergency. Widespread insecurity and conflict severely impacted food security, causing a sharp reduction in crop production; standing crops, stored seeds and productive assets were lost, leaving the population unable to resume food production.

5 December 2013: The security situation deteriorated with the attack on Bangui and the massive violence and displacement of people that followed.

11 December 2013: UN agencies agreed to take all necessary steps to enhance the response to the crisis in CAR by scaling up their capacities to immediately assist millions in need.

16 December 2013: In Geneva, the 2014 Strategic Response Plan (SRP) for CAR was launched, a common humanitarian action plan to respond to the urgent needs of conflict-affected people. 

24 December 2013: The 100 Day Plan was launched, supplementing the SRP with a more specific and operational plan (i.e. priority actions to be undertaken from December 2013 to March 2014).

19 January 2014: The revised Strategic Response Plan was launched.
