At least 18 states in sub-Saharan Africa experienced active, subnational armed conflict in 2021, compared to 21 (Angola, Côte d’Ivoire and Guinea being the three additional countries) in 2020. Low-intensity armed conflicts (fewer than 1000 conflict-related deaths) occurred in 6 states, and high-intensity armed conflicts (1000–9999 deaths) occurred in 12—two more than in 2020. The Central African Republic (CAR) and Sudan moved from being low-intensity armed conflicts in 2020 to high-intensity armed conflicts in 2021.1
