Country Brief

The Central African Republic is a landlocked African country, and is among the poorest countries on the planet, their economy still relies on a primary agricultural sector .To the various internal constraints to the country’s development, including the low level of industrialisation and the land-locked nature of the country, are added the ongoing changes in the climate, which are reflected in different impacts: occasions extreme climate events (floods, droughts, tropical storms etc.) that may result in natural disasters. The vulnerability to changes in the climate and a lack of ability to adapt to their adverse impacts represent serious threats to the management of ecosystems and other agricultural and renewable natural resources, social cohesion, stability and sustainable development. Thus, the Central African Republic is obliged to take into account the adaptation of its land, its communities and its socioeconomic activities in this effort to contribute to the mitigation of climate change.
