On March 30, 2016, the inauguration of Professor Faustin Archange TOUADERA as the new President of Central African Republic after three years of political transition gave rise to much hope. The election promises focused on a return to normality for this country devastated by three years of crises: the restoration of peace, stability and reconciliation.

A year later, it is clear that this dynamic seems to be under threat with the wave of violence that has once again crossed the country since October 2016. By March 2017, 60% of the country is still under the control of non-state armed groups and promises made to the millions of Central Africans who were hungry, displaced, wounded and abused seem to have vanished in uncertainty. The efforts made by the new authorities need to be sustained and to receive real financial and technical support from the international community.
