Logistics & Emergency Telecommunications Cluster Augmentation in Central African Republic

Countries: Central African Republic | Operations ID: 200997 | Operations type: Special Operation (SO)

This operation has been revised as per budget revision 1 (see below)

Since December 2013, the humanitarian situation in the Central African Republic (C.A.R.) has deteriorated due to widespread sectarian conflict. The volatile socio-political situation in C.A.R. has generated additional and growing humanitarian needs, highlighted by the unrest in the capital Bangui in September 2015, which displaced almost 50,000 people in a matter of weeks. Despite the deactivation of the Level-3 emergency in May 2015, and the largely peaceful electoral process that took place between December 2015 and February 2016, almost the entire population has been affected by the political crisis. The 2016 Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) for Central African Republic notes that 50% of the population of 4.6 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance. The activities in this Special Operation form an integral component of the HRP. The Special Operation 200997 is required for 8 months, from 01st August 2016–31st March 2017.
