Current Operations
Provision of Humanitarian Air Services in CAR

This Operation has been modified as per Budget Revision 3 (see below)

The Special Operation (SO) 200522 has been prepared to ensure continued provision of safe and reliable air transport services to the humanitarian community in the Central African Republic (CAR) for 2013. Previously (from October 2006 until December 2012) humanitarian air operations in CAR were implemented through SO No. 105620.  Due to insecurity in the Central African Republic (CAR) resulting from acts of continuous armed conflict in the north-west, north and north-east; and the Lord’s Resistance Army activities in the south-east of the country, humanitarian workers are unable to travel safely by road. In addition, during the rainy season most roads become impassable, impeding access to beneficiaries.  In the absence of safe and reliable air service providers in CAR, WFP/UNHAS remains critical for implementation of humanitarian projects. Over 40humanitarian organizations rely on humanitarian air services to access internally displaced people (IDPs), refugees, host populations and other vulnerable people throughout theentire country.
