Central African Republic (CAR)

The Central African Republic (CAR) is faced with an increasing explosive ordnance threat following years of conflicts which continue to impact civilian lives and livelihoods and impede humanitarian access in the country. This explosive ordnance threat is coupled with a history of illicit flow of small arms and light weapons, undermining the stability and the rule of law in a context where the national authorities’ ability to manage and store weapons and ammunition is structurally non-existent.
