EC plead for concerted international action in Central African Republic

Reacting to the escalating humanitarian catastrophe in the Central African Republic (CAR), Kristalina Georgieva, EU Commissioner for International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response, declared that: "the humanitarian tragedy in the Central African Republic continues to unravel in front of our eyes."

Together with UN Emergency Relief Coordinator Valerie Amos, Georgieva has called a high-level meeting in Brussels on 20 January 2014 to take stock of the humanitarian challenges in CAR and identify priorities for a sustained and effective humanitarian engagement.
