Central African Republic
In the last half-century, the Central African Republic (CAR) has experienced a cycle of coups, rebellions and widespread violence. After a transition period that begun in early 2014 and was consolidated by the deployment of international peacekeeping forces, the return to constitutional order was reflected in the adoption of a new Constitution in December 2015 and the election of President Faustin-Archange Touadéra in March 2016. However, the hope generated by these events is less and less shared by the Central Africans, who continues to face an alarming humanitarian situation, insecurity and a lack of governance and social cohesion. We work with local partners to strengthen the capacity of communities and build social cohesion within them so they can develop and implement more effective community led, owned, and managed security plans.
