CAR: Displacement resulting from electoral violence
Since 2013, Chad has been one of the main host countries for refugees fleeing conflict and its effects in Central African Republic (CAR). As of January 2021, around 103,000 CAR refugees are hosted in camps and villages across Salamat, Moyen-Chari, Mandoul and Logone Oriental regions in southern Chad.? The refugees and their host populations face elevated needs across a number of different sectors including food, protection, health and WASH. Around 104,000 people in southern Chad are estimated to be food insecure (IPC Phases 3-5) during the October-December 2020 period. COVID-19 has further hampered the delivery of humanitarian assistance to CAR refugees and host communities, already limited by a persistent lack of funding for response efforts and reduced humanitarian access to some areas, particularly during the rainy season (June-October).?
Some 8,400 people fleeing violence in the context of the 27 December elections in the Central African Republic have arrived in Nya Pende department (Logone Oriental province) between mid-December 2020 and 12 March 2021. ?
No significant recent humanitarian developments. This crisis is being monitored by our analysis team.
The volatile security situation, combined with a lack of basic infrastructure, restricts humanitarian access. People in need often have limited access to services as a result of insecurity, particularly in the Lac region and several areas in the south and east. Armed group attacks along the border areas with Niger and Nigeria further hamper access. Interference in humanitarian activities is a concern, with lengthy registration and visa processes continuing to impede access and the entry of humanitarian staff into the country. Insecurity in the Lac region has led to an increase in displacement, and has limited access to basic services and humanitarian aid for the affected population. Most of Chad experiences seasonal floods – the rainy season usually lasts from April–October – making the delivery of aid more difficult. Physical constraints, such as poor road conditions and the many islands in the Lac region, also negatively affect the delivery of aid.
