By now more than a million people in CAR have been displaced and 2.5 million people – over half of the population - need humanitarian assistance.
Join us for the launch of issue 62 of the Humanitarian Exchange on the Central African Republic – the day after the new UN peacekeeping mission (MINUSCA) is deployed – to discuss what approaches are being used to support conflict-affected people and what more can be done by MINUSCA to protect them and prevent more violence.
