Central African Republic Humanitarian Dashboard (January - March 2023)





Populations in the Central African Republic continue to face insecurity and threats to their well-being: one in five Central Africans is an internal displaced person or a refugee in the neighbouring countries. In 2023, the number of people in need of humanitarian assistance and protections is estimated at 3.4 million with 2.4 million being targeted through the Humanitarian Response Plan.

From January to March 2023, humanitarian actors provided life-saving assistance to 657,697 people, mainly covering the sectors of water, hygiene and sanitation (WASH), shelter/non-food items (NFI), health, food security, nutrition and protection. Gaps remain in the assistance to affected populations; with several sectors having received little to no funding compared to the same period in 2022. This will be further aggravated by the effects of the ongoing crisis in Sudan, exacerbating people’s vulnerabilities as the rainy season approaches and food prices are increasing.

Funding requirements for the 2023 humanitarian response are estimated at US$ 465 million. As of 31 March, only 22 per cent have been mobilized, leaving a gap of US$ 364.6 million.
