Summary:

The Central African Republic (C.A.R.) is a fragile state. The key economic corridor between Bangui and Cameroon remains stable, but security has deteriorated in other areas. Armed groups have targeted civilians, humanitarian workers, and UN troops and half of the population needs humanitarian assistance. The government is taking steps to restore the authority of the state, notably in the provinces, and launched the disarmament, demobilization, reintegration and repatriation program. Medium-term growth has been revised downward as violence weighs on agricultural production. The ECF-supported program is an integral part of the effort in the CEMAC region to redress regional imbalances and rebuild adequate buffers.
