Upsurge of IDPs in Cameroon’s Anglophone Regions

CHRDA notes with dismay the upsurge in the number of IDPs and burned-down settlements in Cameroon’s Northwest (NWR) and Southwest Regions (SWR) due to ongoing and new armed conflicts between armed separatist groups and the government defense and security forces in new localities in both regions.

An estimate of 274,908 civilians are currently internally displaced in the NWR, while 278,867 have been displaced in the SWR, making a 74% increase since the last publication on the Plight of +400,000 IDPs with 113 [out of 170] settlements severely affected, indicating that newer conflicts have emerged, and newer communities have been targeted by military raids.

CHRDA calls on the government to not only accelerate its programme on humanitarian assistance to IDPs, but to equally review such programme to reflect updated internal migration trends while prioritizing the process of putting an end to ongoing and protracted and projected military raids.
