CAR is a signatory to the 1951 convention as well as its additional protocol, in addition to establishing a national framework for its implementation as of 2007. There are roughly 10,611 refugees in CAR, 50% of which are women. Most refugees live in rural areas within refugee camps at 78.9%, with 10% living in urban areas. Most refugees in CAR are from DRC at 42.38%, Chad at 30.4% and South Sudan at 19.39%. In addition to refugees there are also 688,700 IDPs within the country (GFI). Although land has been allocated for refugees by the government, food assistance is the main source of livelihoods for refugees. The main livelihoods opportunities for refugees include agriculture, livestock, breeding and small trade. Most refugees report living conditions similar to the countries in which they fled, with socio-economic and political instability in the country having a strong impact on the overall well being of refugees as well as their livelihoods.
