Central African Republic Storage Assessment

With the exception of main localities such as Bangui, Bouar, Bambari, Paoua and Kaga-Bandoro where the Government has built warehouses, food storage conditions in the rest of the country are not very good due to the absence of adequate facilities. Therefore, WFP has set up a number of Wiik-halls to increase its storage capacity and get closer to beneficiaries.
In addition to government storage facilities and WFP Wiik-halls, there are few warehouses built/owned by non-governmental organisations in various parts of the country where they operate. The capacity of these warehouses is however limited, not exceeding 100 metric tons.
Finally, there are large storages available within the port premises in Bangui, with 15 warehouses available offering about 30,000 metric tons of capacity. The condition of these warehouses is good, with water supply and electricity. However, pallets are not available and it is advisable to check the roof, especially during the rainy season to be sure there is no leaking which could damage the food.
