The Central African Republic (CAR) lies at the heart of one of the world’s most volatile regions, characterised by inter-related armed conflicts, high levels of insecurity and forced displacement within and across borders. The country itself has also suffered decades of conflict, crisis, instability and stalled development. In order to help establish an evidence base on the displacement situation in different regions of CAR, JIPS was requested to support three profiling exercises, including:
- Bamingui-Bangoran prefecture in 2011
- Markounda and Kabo in 2012
In 2015, we were also invited to Bangui to help plan an exercise in the capital focused on IDPs and returnees to the capital. However, due to deteriorating security at the time, plans did not go ahead.
