Violence In CAR Triggers New Wave Of Refugees Fleeing To Cameroon

A new wave of refugees from Central African Republic (CAR) has crossed the border to Cameroon after conflict broke out between the Séléka movement and the former Bozizé regime last year. The new refugees add to the nearly 88,000 CAR refugees already living in the Adamaoua and Eastern regions.


Cameroon ranks 150 out of 186 on the 2012 UNDP Human Development Index. With a gross domestic product (GDP) of US$2,002 per capita, more than 40 percent of the country’s 20 million people live below the poverty line, and 70 percent depend on agro-pastoral activities.
