Chad is facing interconnected humanitarian crises in a context of chronic poverty and low economic development. The security situation in neighboring countries has led to large population movements into Chad, as well as internal displacement for several years.
The camp population as at 28th February 2017. The figure is inclusive of Kalobeyei population.
Number of South Sudanese new arrivals registered in the month of February 2017
The population currently hosted at Kalobeyei Settlement.
USD 65M Requested for Kakuma operation.
The economic context is dramatic: the crashing currency and out-of-control inflation are not ideal circumstances for relying on markets.
Traders face difficulties on both sides – importing from Uganda is risky and uncertain, while demand is sluggish.
Supplies from Sudan may partially offset these challenges, but they are highly constrained by the official border closure and seasonal factors.
Cautious implementation of CBT may be feasible although it will be extremely challenging given the circumstances.

LES POINTS MARQUANTS
Avec 369 000 réfugiés en 2016, le Tchad est le troisième pays d’accueil en Afrique subsaharienne.
Une mission conjointe de la Banque mondiale, du HCR, et de l’ONU s’est rendue sur place pour définir ses prochaines interventions.
Avec 20% de problèmes humanitaires et 70% de problèmes de développement, il s’agit d’aider aussi bien les réfugiés que les populations d’accueil.
March 17, 2017
Chad hosted the third largest number of refugees in sub-Saharan Africa with 369,000 refugees in 2016.
A joint mission comprising the World Bank, the UNHCR, and the UN visited Chad to identify its future interventions.
Interventions will aim to provide assistance to not only the refugee population, but also the host communities.
The Initiative for School Meals and Social Protection in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region aims at enhancing the effectiveness and broadening the coverage and impact of school meals programmes as a key social protection instrument in support of poor and vulnerable children and marginalized communities. It embraces both crisis situations as well as more stable but vulnerable contexts, strengthening resilience and providing opportunities for more inclusive development pathways and social stability.
• Food security levels in the country remain critical, with famine declared in southern Unity state at the end of February. Access restrictions to affected areas is limiting the ability of the humanitarian community to respond. UNICEF and WFP dispatched five rapid response teams to southern Unity in late February/early March to provide immediate, lifesaving assistance to affected populations.
Situation Générale en février 2017
Prévision jusqu'à’mi-avril 2017
This brief summarizes FEWS NET’s most forward-looking analysis of projected emergency food assistance needs in FEWS NET coverage countries. The projected size of each country’s acutely food insecure population is compared to last year and the recent five-year average. Countries where external emergency food assistance needs are anticipated are identified. Projected lean season months highlighted in red indicate either an early start or an extension to the typical lean season.

Farmers, traders and consumers across East and Southern Africa are feeling the impact of consecutive seasons of drought that have scorched harvests and ruined livelihoods.
Over 25,000 people in Belle Elsereif in South Darfur’s East Jebel Marra locality are in need of humanitarian aid.
Aid organisations continue to respond to the needs of over 53,000 Jebel Marra IDPs in North Darfur.
National cereal production is estimated at 8 million MT—a 70% increase compared to the five-year average.
Over 11,000 people in Kurmuk locality, Blue Nile State are facing serious water shortages.
FIGURES 2017 HRP
The people of the Sudan’s Darfur Region have experienced numerous shocks of various types over the past 15 years. This report describes exactly how shocks have affected specific livelihood groups in Darfur, the extent to which people have been successful at recovering their self-sufficiency, and why. We found that households make calculated decisions based on balancing the potential risks and returns of activities in light of shocks. We found that some key factors influencing resilience and recovery in this context include:
Number of refugees registered in the country
Number of refugees newly registered in January
Number of refugee youth in the country
Number of unaccompanied and separated children
WORKING WITH PARTNERS
Data analyzed from various partner reports show that drought and conflict in the region has had a negative impact on families, with women and girls bearing a heavier brunt because of prevailing gender roles and practices. Women in parts of Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya are struggling to keep their families alive amidst devastating drought caused by cyclical below-average rains. Conflict and displacement in the region has led to an increase of gender-based violence, especially among women and girls.

Our understanding of the constraints holding back Africa’s women farmers and entrepreneurs is improving – thanks to an ICARDA-managed wheat initiative working across sub-Saharan Africa.
Gender inequality is a recurring feature of many agricultural production systems across the wheat-growing regions of Africa, and women farmers often lack access to credit, land, and other inputs. The result: limited adoption of new innovations, low productivity and income, and a missed opportunity to enhance household food security and prosperity.

• Many countries across the African continent face recurrent complex emergencies, frequent food insecurity, cyclical drought, and sudden-onset disasters such as earthquakes, floods, and storms. In FY 2016, as in previous years, USAID/OFDA not only responded to urgent needs resulting from disasters, but also supported DRR programs that built resilience and improved emergency preparedness, mitigation, and response capacity at local, national, and regional levels.
