Background and justification:
The Central African Republic (CAR) has been affected by a complex humanitarian and protection crisis since December 2012. The violence against civilian populations observed in 2017 has reached a level unprecedented since the height of the crisis in 2014. While the election of President Touadera in March 2016 had raised expectations, and hopes for a gradual return to stability and normalcy, for the first time in two years, insecurity and violent conflicts have uprooted more than one in five families from their homes. The proportion of people in need of humanitarian assistance is among the highest in the world. Nearly half of all Central Africans - including 2.2 million children - depend on aid to survive. Population movements have taken place in remote and inaccessible areas - many of which are without road access due to a lack of bridges, which have been purposely destroyed by armed groups. As of 31 December 2017, the commission on population movement (CMP) members and partners reported that 688,700 people were internally displaced. Access is also hampered by poor road conditions, especially during the rainy season. At the same time, fragmentation and extreme violence by some armed groups make it difficult to engage and negotiate humanitarian access, making assessment and response missions increasingly onerous and difficult to carry out.
It is the children who are the most affected by the ongoing conflict. They need prompt and quality humanitarian assistance in addition to basic social service, however, in the majority of territories in the country, the assistance is not available. The absence or weak presence of child protection actors in addition to the lack of basic social services, which, in principle, are supposed to be provided through the state service. Children needs a protective environment against many protection risks such as abuse, exploitation and recruitment by armed groups.
In 2017, UNICEF and its partners assisted 3,066 children formerly associated with armed groups with release and socio-economic reintegration; 128,785 children including 60,199 girls benefited from recreational activities in 120 mobile and fixed child friendly spaces and community centers in conflict and post-conflict situations; 939 GBV/SEA survivors including 282 survivors of SEA allegedly committed by international forces including MINUSCA forces and other humanitarian actors, received holistic assistance.
