International efforts in the Central African Republic have been inconsistent, with insufficient and ebbing aid. NRC declared it the world’s most neglected crisis in 2017.
While CAR is one of the most dangerous places for humanitarians to work (UNOCHA reports 179 incidents affecting humanitarian workers in 2022), NRC builds acceptance to ensure that our support serves communities through integrated multi-sector assistance. We try to focus on hard-to-reach areas where few other organisations are present and aim to provide sustainable assistance. In 2023, our country office has operations in eight prefectures. NRC also advocates for durable solutions and for the protection and rights of those affected by conflict, with a particular focus on housing, land and property rights.
