The Central African Republic remains one of the poorest countries in the world and is grappling with numerous human capital challenges. CAR ranks near the very bottom of the UN Human Development Index (188 out of 189 countries in December 2018), which could present devastating consequences for its future generation.
According to the World Bank, in 2016, the average gross national income per capita was 17,000 FCFA. This is equivalent to 25€ per month. These very low wages, coupled with a lack of agricultural production, are the root cause of the state of famine and undernourishment in the region.
