The African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights has established a Working Group on Indigenous Populations/Communities that undertook a research and information visit to the Central African Republic in January 2007. From that visit this report was created, which gives an account of meetings held with government authorities, civil society organizations, indigenous communities, and other stakeholders. It describes the situation of the indigenous populations in the Central African Republic, explores two key groups of indigenous peoples (namely the Aka, who are the larger group of "Pygmies" and the Mbororo) and it makes recommendations to the Government, civil society organizations, and the international community. The report is published both in English and French.
