With political crises and violent conflicts, the Central African Republic descended into chaos in 2013. Approximately a million people, in particular from rural regions, fled to neighbouring countries or to safe places within the country. Of the 4.6 million inhabitants, every second one is dependent on humanitarian assistance (UN OCHA). Agricultural production has therefore drastically diminished, and food prices are exploding. More than 30% of the population is going hungry and has no access to clean drinking water or sanitation facilities.
