01/02/2017 - 31/05/2017
Central African Republic
12 cycle of IPC analysis

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, limit and unacceptable food consumption score (46%, 42% and 29% respectively). The number of meals per day is 1.4 and the average Coping Strategy Index is 19.3 reflecting a more precarious food situation than in the rest of the country.


The most vulnerable populations are those displaced or living in the host families whose access to livelihoods remains very limited.
