Sorghum, millet, white maize, and local and imported rice are the most important food commodities. Millet is most heavily consumed in the eastern and northern regions of the country. Local rice is another basic food commodity, especially for poorer households. Imported rice and white maize are most commonly consumed in and around the capital. The Marché d'Atrone in N’Djamena, the capital city, is the largest market for cereals. Moundou is an important consumer center for sorghum and the second largest market after the capital. The Abéché market is located in a northern production area.
West Africa can be divided into three agro-ecological zones or three different trade basins (West Basin, Central Basin and East Basin). Both important for understanding market behavior and dynamics.

Les marchés du BET reprennent leurs activités après la réouverture des frontières avec la Libye
Messages clés La réouverture de la frontière avec la Libye a relancé les flux transfrontaliers au bénéfice des marchés du Nord (Borkou, Tibesti), et de l’Ouest (Nord Kanem et BEG), qui s’approvisionnent essentiellement en denrées alimentaires manufacturées. Ces flux fonctionnent au ralenti à partir des couloirs autorisés. Ceci améliorerait la situation alimentaire des ménages pauvres et les ramène en Phase Stress (Phase 2 de l’IPC).

DAKAR, April 27 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - School teachers in the Lake Chad region where Boko Haram is waging an insurgency are being trained to identify and respond to security threats to protect children from the Islamist group, the United Nations said on Thursday.
Schools are particularly vulnerable to bombings, attacks, and abductions by the insurgents but many lack detailed safety plans, the U.N. children's agency (UNICEF) said.
Food security and nutrition analysis results released in March 2017 indicate that 2.2 million people are affected by food insecurity in Chad from March to May 2017, almost one in five people.
