This report is the result of the 10th cycle of IPC analysis conducted from 1 to 7 April 2015.Despite the onset of the lean season, the analysis showed a slight improvement of the food insecurity situation compared to the end of 2014, which allowed people access to their livelihood means and food: breeding, cash crops (cotton, coffee, citrus fruits), mining (diamonds and gold), hunting and fishing.

Despite the onset of the lean season, the analysis showed a slight improvement in the food insecurity situation compared to the end of 2014, which allowed people access to their livelihood means and food: breeding, cash crops (cotton, coffee, citrus fruits), mining (diamonds and gold) , hunting and fishing. 

Main results:

  1. Improved security following the decline of conflicts in certain prefectures and deterioration in others.
  2. Increased access to livelihoods and food in the areas with improved security, unlike the areas where social conflicts persist.
  3. Humanitarian assistance is needed to assist vulnerable people through the lean period that has begun in March 2015, and resilience support is required for those that gradually access their livelihoods.

The most vulnerable populations are those displaced, especially households in the bush about which very little information is available and the families who have lost their productive assets, which are less visible, but also vulnerable . According to the Commission's Movement of Population (CMP ), the number of IDPs has increased in the prefectures of Ouham , Nana Gribizi , Ouaka , Haute Kotto and Mbomou Haut. These displaced people have no access to their livelihoods. 

The main factors behind food insecurity are:

  • extreme poverty (CAR ranks 180th out of 186 countries in the UNDP Development Index)
  • loss of livelihoods
  • destructurization of social fabric
  • 412 902 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in October 2014
