CAR: Census?

Excerpt from CARPE Congo Basin News Page (May 2003): "..According to Koulaninga, the conference mandated the CAR to coordinate a project for studies on the pygmies, with funding from UNESCO, the UN Development Programme, and the UN population Fund and the UN Children's Fund..." NB: No further information about the status of the CAR census could be found on the internet nor on the websites of UNESCO, UNDP or UNICEF.

NB: On or about 10 October 2006, a commercial supplement to Jeune Afrique entitled "Les Guides Ecofinance: Les Cles Pour Investir - Centrafrique, Le pays et son potentiel economique" refers on p. 12 to a census. Exceprt: "Minorities: premier habitants des forets du Sud, Les Pygmees (Ba'aka ou Akas) vivent aujourd'hui de maniere autonome dans la region de la Lobaye (leur nombre est estime a 12,400, selon le recensement de 2003. Autre minoritie, les Mbororos sont des eleveurs nomades qui vivent dans la partie centrale et occidentale du pays (38,600 habitants en 2003)." Supplement notes the address for the official government site as www.rca-gouv.com but notes that the site is currently in the process of being developed.
