Strengthening Food Security Cluster Coordination in Central African Republic

The recent attacks in Bangui have further exacerbated an already dramatic humanitarian situation resulting from the Central African Republic (CAR) conflict. Simultaneously there has been renewed violence in other parts of the country including Bossangoa, Bozoum, Bouar and Damara provinces. The CAR context is expected to remain volatile and unpredictable in 2014, despite the deployment of additional international military forces.
As of 9 December, it is estimated that some 2.6 million3 persons are in immediate need of assistance including some 533,0004 are internally displaced persons. The humanitarian needs are expected to continue to rise with the deterioration of the security and humanitarian situation in the country. This scale of the humanitarian needs will be more evident when access increases.
