DCA has been working in the Central African Republic since 2015, focusing on improving the resilience of the Central African communities affected by the ongoing conflict. This goes through a combination of Humanitarian Needs response, Mine Action, Social Cohesion, Protection and Livelihoods activities.
Programme goal and objectives
DCA started its response in Central African Republic by supporting communities exposed to risks caused by Explosive Remnants of War (ERW) and Small Arms and Light Weapons (SALW), armed violence and extreme poverty, through a combination of humanitarian mine action and protection. Our current work in Central African Republic focuses more on social cohesion, conflict prevention, peacebuilding, humanitarian aid (livelihoods, mental health and psychosocial support and some other emergency needs).
The goal of DCA in the Central African Republic, in a mid-term basis, is to contribute to building safer communities by ensuring vulnerable and displaced people are safe and withstand shocks and crisis, by restoring community dialogue structures and supporting peace and protection strategies within social groups. Or even that communities in post-crisis and fragile contexts are self-reliant in relative peace.
Scope of the programmes
Since 2015, DCA seeks to contribute to a Central African Republic where there is a dynamic and accountable engagement of civil society. DCA has continuously adapted the structures of its programmes for ensuring effective access to protection and live-saving assistance to IDPs and host communities in times of crisis by providing cash, food assistance and protection intervention to the most vulnerable. This increases the beneficiaries’ opportunities to return to a safe and dignified life. The organisation also strengthens the resilience, and self-reliance of the most vulnerable and conflict-affected people, with a special focus on internally displaced people (IDP’s) and host communities.
