This presentation on the challenges for a humanitarian response in an urbanising crisis: the IDPs in Bangui, Central African Republic, was given by Dr Anne Burlat, housing and urban specialist, of Groupe URD at the International Institute for Environment and Development on 28 June 2017.
The study explores the methods and objectives of the humanitarian response to the refugee crisis in Bangui, in the context of a national crisis where assistance is needed elsewhere. It highlights the stakeholders involved and their relations in this sector-based response.
The humanitarian response has not managed to adapt to the way the crisis has evolved. Having originally been a humanitarian crisis with an urban component, in Bangui it has become an urban crisis with a humanitarian component.
The goodwill of all those involved is obvious, but the complexity of urban issues and the Central African context is very difficult for a humanitarian system that is dedicated to beneficiaries.
