Working environment

Chad has been welcoming and hosting hundreds of thousands of refugees, many for over 13 years. Over 26,600 hectares of land have been provided to refugees by the Government and, subject to available resources, access to some health services is also granted to refugees.

At the same time, continued regional insecurity has led to the Government’s decision to close the borders with Niger, Nigeria and the Central African Republic which together with military activities around the Lake Chad Region, have paralyzed agricultural and fishing activities, with significant economic consequences for Chad. Refugee services remain of a high standard compared to national services, rendering it critical to partner with local authorities to ensure consistency and harmonization. 

Few new arrivals are expected from Nigeria, CAR and Sudan as the situations in those countries continue to stabilize. UNHCR continues to explore the possibility of concluding tripartite agreements for solutions together with Chad, and the Central African Republic and Sudan respectively. It is hoped that this will provide opportunities for durable solutions for some 45,800 people of concern during the course of 2017. 

Key priorities

In 2017, UNHCR’s operation will focus on:
•    supporting the adoption of the national refugee law and the extension of the law on civil status to refugee children born in Chad, which will permit the issuance of birth certificates; and pave the way of sustainable  integration of refugees in the national system in partnership with development actors 
•    successfully implementing the fundraising strategy to develop a solar-powered water system in the eastern part of the country; and
•    promoting community empowerment through self-reliance and peaceful coexistence projects, as well as seeking to reduce malnutrition through multi-sectoral interventions.
