The succession of crises over the last 20 years has destroyed the resilience of the population, and any prospect of return of internally displaced persons and refugees is receding. The targeting of ethnic and religious minorities, including the most vulnerable such as women and children, has emerged as a modus operandi of armed groups, and cases of killings or attacks of a cross-community nature are increasing. While the analysis in 2016, suggested a reduction in the number of people in need, the security conditions in the country reversed the downward trend with an increase of 2.2 to 2.5 million of people in need for 2018.
