The civilian population bears the brunt of the prolonged tensions and increased armed violence in several parts of the country.
The Central African Republic is one of the most dangerous places for humanitarian personnel with 297 incidents affecting humanitarian workers in the first seven months of 2021 compared to 230 during the same period in 2020.
The sub-prefectures of Bossangoa, Kaga-Bandoro and Bangui, were the most affected. A humanitarian worker lost his life following to an armed robbery at his residence and four others were injured in highway robberies in the provinces.
Theft, robbery, looting, threats, and assaults accounted for 68% of the incidents (202 out of 297), while the remaining 32% were interferences and restrictions.
