STORYLINE:
A new declaration calling for more concerted action to help nearly 1.4 million displaced Central Africans has been signed after a key regional conference organized by the Government of Cameroon and the UN Refugee Agency.

The Yaounde Declaration marks the first step toward establishing a regional coordination mechanism for advancing solutions to one of Africa’s largest displacement crises.

Since 2013, the CAR has experienced successive crises affecting six neighboring countries that today host around 700,000 refugees.

Cameroon has received the most significant number of CAR refugees (345,000), followed by the Democratic Republic of the Congo (12,000), the Republic of Chad (119,000), the Republic of Congo (29,000), Sudan (28,000), and South Sudan (2,500).

The Declaration calls “for the international community to demonstrate greater solidarity and commitment to responsibility sharing, in accordance with the commitments made in the Global Compact on Refugees (GCR), and to strengthen the coordination and coherence of programmes implemented in support of the peacebuilding process in the Central African Republic.”

The signatories of the Declaration further committed to “actively” supporting peace efforts in the CAR, particularly the implementation of the 2019 peace accord and the recommendations of the March 2022 Republican Dialogue, in which refugees and internally displaced people participated.

Despite the challenges, opportunities for returns exist.

Over 100,000 Central African refugees have already returned home spontaneously, while between 2017 and 2021, UNHCR facilitated the voluntary repatriation of 27,000 refugees. In addition, 60,000 internally displaced people have also returned to their places of origin.
