Central African Republic: The Lost Country

The collapse of the country after more than a year of violence.

Two years after the coup that triggered the spiral of clashes and retaliation between rival militias, the violence continues to claim the lives of many people in the Central African Republic. There are still nearly one million displaced persons and refugees, many of them outside of the areas which humanitarian aid can easily reach. Homelessness and poverty are increasing while agricultural activity cannot be carried out as normal, and the people are more divided and polarised than ever as a result of the violence.
