Protracted Relief and Recovery Operation - Côte d’Ivoire

This Operation has been modified as per Budget Revision 1 (see below).

Côte d’Ivoire, once West Africa's economic driving force, is slowly emerging from over ten years of political, military and economic crisis. A rebellion in 2002 caused large-scale internal displacement of 700,000 people and the division of the country into a rebel-held north and government-run south. Following the November 2010 elections, an additional 500,000-700,000 people were internally displaced due to fighting and social disturbances. In May 2011, a new president of Côte d’Ivoire was sworn in, providing a basis for reconstruction, rehabilitation and eventual growth for a long-suffering country. However, the process of political reconciliation has not ended the humanitarian crisis, as displaced people continue to seek shelter and are in need of humanitarian assistance.
