Since 2013, the Central African Republic continues to experience violent conflicts among different armed groups in most parts of the country primarily due to unequal distribution of national wealth and power struggle among national leaders. The capital Bangui is relatively calm but remains fragile and prone to further conflicts as the government is not in total control of all parts of its territory. According to the consolidated displacement figure in the country, the Commission de Movement de Population reports that about 600,000 people are internally displaced in the country including the capital Bangui. Humanitarian actors are not only overwhelmed with humanitarian needs but also challenged accessing displacement locations. For some parts in the country’s central belt and the entire south – eastern belt, humanitarian workers are targeted and their premises are looted. Affected organizations have decided to reduce their presence and response capacity in the affected locations due to lack of security to protect their resources. This decision to reduce presence and response capacity has compounded the sufferings on vulnerable groups including women and children.

IOM’s presence is stable in the country since 2013, providing humanitarian assistance to vulnerable IDPs, returnees and host communities and also engaging in reduction of community violence. IOM intends to provide humanitarian assistance to IDPs, returnees and host communities by providing shelter and non-food items, and community infrastructure support through a Cash for Work scheme. Also, protection services will be provided to Victims of Trafficking and vulnerable migrants. Displacement tracking will be at the heart of these operations in order to have an evidence-based response. These actions will help reduce the already stressful condition on host communities and address the priority needs of the affected population.   

IOM co-leads the CCCM/shelter/NFI cluster and is active in other relevant clusters including protection, logistics, WASH, and IM Working Group, among others. IOM works in coordination with relevant government ministries including the Ministries of Interior, Justice and MASRN. IOM has consolidated presence in the country with five functioning field offices. The Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM tools) is attracting attention in the CCCM and WASH clusters as a more reliable means of data collection. IOM is requested by the cluster to deploy its DTM in affected locations in order to inform relevant partners on the number of displaced persons and service gaps by sector. 

Overall Targeted Beneficiaries: 104,500 beneficiaries, including 100,000 IDPs, 3,000 IDPs, returnees and host communities, and 1,500 victims of trafficking and vulnerable migrants
