There were at least 20 states with active armed conflicts in sub-Saharan Africa in 2020 (see table 7.1). This was three more (Angola, Côte d’Ivoire and Guinea) than in 2019. Ten were low-intensity, subnational armed conflicts (i.e. with fewer than 1000 conflict-related deaths), and 10 were high-intensity armed conflicts (with 1000–9999 deaths). Ethiopia, Mozambique and Niger moved from being low-intensity armed conflicts in 2019 to high-intensity armed conflicts in 2020.1
