Four of the nine Central African states were involved in armed conflicts in 2021: Cameroon, the Central African Republic (CAR), Chad and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Central Africa contains some of the world’s severest and most protracted crises. Despite most of the region’s countries being resource rich, these natural resources have often been a driver for competition and corruption (and hence weak governance), leading to high levels of poverty and food insecurity. The impact of climate change also drives life-threatening levels of vulnerability.1 Conflict in the region’s hotspots in 2021 persisted (in Cameroon and the DRC) or worsened (in CAR and Chad).
