In 2017, food insecurity, population displacement and the effects of climate change combined to leave 8.1 million Chadians in a state of acute or chronic vulnerability – aggravating an already precarious situation. Around 4.7 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance.
We are responding to the humanitarian needs of displaced populations in the Lake Chad area, implementing health and nutrition programmes to deliver life-saving assistance. Our work in the Sila region of eastern Chad focuses on building community resilience to counter potential disasters. These include the effects of climate change.
