CAR - 2017-2021 Country Strategy Paper
Despite a challenging context marked by an acute socio-political crisis, the Central African Republic (CAR) has achieved significant progress over the past three years. The return to constitutional order following the 2016 general elections at the end a three-year transition period, opens a window of opportunity for the new authorities to set the country on the path to stability, recovery and development. This will enable CAR to break with the recurring crises that have marked its history. However, some areas of the territory remain occupied by armed groups that perpetrate acts of violence, destruction and looting of property, as well as illicit and uncontrolled exploitation of mineral resources. Insecurity has led to the forced displacement of people inside and outside CAR.
