Acute Food Insecurity Classification

According to the IPC Acute Food Insecurity analysis update conducted in September 2018, 1.9 million people, corresponding to 40% of the population analyzed, is severely food insecure and in need of urgent action. Specifically, about 550,000 people, corresponding to 13% of the population analyzed, is facing Emergency food insecurity conditions (IPC Phase 4) and about 1,350,000 people, 31% of the population analyzed, is in Crisis (IPC Phase 3).  Food insecurity is more severe in the areas affected by the conflict in center north and east of the country, where a large number of displaced people and host families live. About 30% of the population in IPC Phase 3 and IPC Phase 4 is located in ‘concentrations’, relatively safe zones within prefectures’ main towns, where IDPs are hosted in[...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

In March 2018, seven concentrations in CAR were classified in Emergency (IPC Phase 4) and ten prefectures and two concentrations were classified in Crisis (IPC Phase 3). During the lean season, from April to August 2018, in the absence of food assistance, it is estimated that there will be five prefectures and eight concentrations in Emergency (IPC Phase 4) and eight prefectures and one concentration Crisis (IPC Phase 3). Only the Bangui area would maintain IPC Phase 2 (Stress). Even with current food assistance, the population in need of immediate assistance in March 2018 was around 1.6 million and during the lean period (April - August 2018) would be around 2 million, of which a third located in sub-prefectures with a high concentration of displaced persons. The most vulnerab[...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

As of February 2017, approximately 1,110,000 people are in Crisis and Emergency (IPC phase 3 and 4) in the areas analyzed, not including Nana-Gribizi and Bangui. Out of fifteen (15) prefectures analyzed, eight (8) are classified in Crisis (IPC Phase 3), mainly due to the impact of civil insecurity on livelihoods and access to food. To note that the prefectures of Bamingui-Bangoran, Haute-Kotto and Lower-Kotto have moved from phase 2 to phase 3 compared to the analysis of December 2016. The situation has improved in the prefectures of Nana-Mambéré, Sangha-Mbaéré, Mambéré-Kadei and Mbomou.  Ouham has been in phase 3 and 4 for more than 3 consecutive years. The main results of the Ouham are: poor, limited and unacceptable food consumption score (46%, 42% and 29% respectively). The [...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

In December 2015, the 11th cycle of IPC analysis concluded that 1,787,560 people were in humanitarian phases (phase 3 & 4 IPC). An update of the last IPC Analysis was conducted in August 2016 and covers the period from August to December 2016.  According to the August 2016 IPC update on the Central African Republic (CAR), 2,008,856 people are in Crisis and Emergency (IPC phase 3 & 4 IPC), corresponding to 40% of the total population and including 1,879,827 people in rural areas, 37% of the rural population and 129 028 people in Bangui or 15% of the population of Bangui.  The Analysis of the month of August 2016 consists in an update of the one carried out in December 2015. However, due to a lack of quantitative or representative data at the prefecture level, it attempted to [...]

Aug 2016/ Dec 2016

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

Relative to the November 2014 and April 2015 analyses, the stable security situation in some prefectures allowed a relative return of families to their livelihood. However, despite humanitarian assistance throughout the country, the overall food security situation has deteriorated. There has been an increase from 24% of households with poor consumption in 2014 to 44.2% in 2015. The analysis of household price collection shows a large variation in prices from one prefecture to another. This can be explained by a particularly weak market integration. Corn, groundnut and beans are the most traded commodities. Their price trends are on the rise according to their seasonal cycle: prices are high in August, typically during the lean season, and remain volatile. The nutritional situation is diffi[...]
