unstar this property answer text <p>We remain extremely concerned by the situation in the Central African Republic (CAR). High levels of violence continue across the country, and huge numbers of the population have been displaced. The UN estimates that the whole population has been affected by this conflict in some way and that over 2.5 million people (more than half of the population) are in dire need of humanitarian assistance, including protection, food, health, water and sanitation and shelter.</p><p>Our immediate focus is on working with the international community to protect civilians from violence and providing humanitarian support. The UK’s support has included £23m humanitarian aid to CAR; logistical support to the French and EUFOR missions; and financial support to MISCA. Diane Corner, former British Ambassador to Kinshasa became the UN Secretary General’s Deputy Special Representative to CAR in September.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Addressing religious tensions in the Central African Republic (CAR) is an important part of supporting international efforts to protect the population from ongoing violence. The Inter-Religious platform in CAR is made up of Muslim and Christian leaders and has been at the forefront of peace-building and reconciliation efforts, engaging with communities that have been directly affected by sectarian violence in CAR. We welcome their efforts to promote dialogue, and have called for similar actions from CAR's transitional government. As my hon friend the Member for Bournemouth East (Tobias Ellwood) said in Westminster Hall on 19 November, without justice, peace and reconciliation, there can be no future for the CAR.</p> more like this

We are supporting close consultation with the African Union, to ensure a smooth transition from the African led International Support Mission to CAR (MISCA) to MINUSCA on 15 September, and we will continue to support UN efforts to bring MINUSCA to full strength as soon as possible.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>We remain greatly concerned by the situation in the Central African Republic (CAR). The UK has supported the planning and logistics for the European Union Force (EUFOR) in CAR, including by providing a military officer to the Operation Headquarters. We provided practical support to speed up the operation’s deployment by flying equipment and personnel to CAR. The UK also supports the ongoing EUFOR Operation by paying a proportion (14.82%) of the operation’s estimated €31.2M common costs. Further to our support to the EUFOR mission we have provided £2 million for the African-led International Support Mission to CAR (MISCA), and provided logistical support to the French (Sangaris) mission. The Department for International Development have also provided £23m in humanitarian aid since mid-2013.</p> more like this
