Central African Republic - Situation report July 2019

Central African Republic - Situation report July 2019
Jul 2019

Key points

  • The latest IPC analysis (June 2019) indicates that the number of people projected to be severely food insecure in June–August 2019 has decreased compared with the previous analysis (October 2018) ‒ from 1.9 to 1.81 million ‒ as well as with the projection for August 2018 (2 million). Of the 1.81 million people, nearly 466 000 are projected to be in emergency conditions (IPC Phase 4) during the lean season, while 1.35 million will be severely food insecure during the harvest period (September–October 2019).
  • Despite the signing of the peace agreement between the Government and 14 armed groups (Khartoum, February 2019), the Central African Republic continues to experience a highly complex and precarious humanitarian situation where persistent insecurity is still the main cause affecting households’ access to food and livelihoods, significantly disrupting livestock, fishing and agricultural activities.
  • The current caseload of internally displaced people (IDP) is of 612 000 (Commission on Population Movement, June 2019) the majority of whom (66 percent) live with host families while the rest in IDP sites. Implementing agricultural activities and rehabilitating value chains are key to contribute to reducing food insecurity, generating socio-economic development, building resilience and stabilizing peace.
  • For 2019, FAO requires a total of USD 30.5 million to assist 900 000 people, of which USD 13.8 million has been received. USD 7.5 million is urgently needed by mid-August to provide 62 500 households with essential agricultural inputs for the campaign starting in September.
