Latest GRID figures analysis

The current displacement crisis in CAR has been ongoing since late 2012, due to the political crisis in the country and subsequent clashes and instability. IDMC’s primary source is the Population Movement Commission (CMP), which publishes regular dashboards based on data provided by local and international NGOs, community and religious groups as well as local authorities.
