Chad faces a number of simultaneous and inter-connected humanitarian crises in a broader context of chronic vulnerability.Insecurity in the region has caused significant population movement from neighbouring countries (Sudan, CAR, Nigeria) as well as internal displacement. Meanwhile, millions are affected by food insecurity and malnutrition, especially in the Sahel belt. In terms of health, the prevalence of some epidemics persists (measles, malaria). Lastly, recurrent natural disasters such as droughts and flooding are exacerbated by the El Nino phenomenon.

Des millions de personnes sont touchées par l’insécurité alimentaire et la malnutrition, en particulier dans la bande sahélienne. Sur le plan sanitaire, la prévalence de certaines épidémies persiste (rougeole, paludisme).

KEY DRIVERS OF THE CRISIS

The approaching lean season, as well as low and late funding, continue to increase the overall chronic vulnerability and erode communities' resilience, many of which resort to negative coping strategies.

The nutritional situation is critical, with several regions and departments exceeding the WHO threshold of 15%. The north east of the country is particularly affected by the nutritional crisis, requiring an urgent intervention in the coming months.

29 Apr 2016 description

KEY DRIVERS OF THE CRISIS

Food insecurity, malnutrition and overall vulnerability are results of recurring natural hazards (droughts, floods), increasing food prices and overall scarcity of resources.

The country continues to host Malian refugees, their returns are contingent on restoring peace and security in Northern Mali.

Diseases under epidemiological surveillance are likely to report increased number of cases as a result of poor access to health structures and water,sanitation, and hygiene facilities.

29 Apr 2016 description

KEY DRIVERS OF THE CRISIS

Chronic vulnerability: recurrent shocks (droughts, floods, epidemics, locust), increasing poverty and market instability have contributed to deterioration of livelihoods.

Limited access to basic social services and timid presence of State administration in certain parts of northern Mali increase the vulnerability of communities.

29 Apr 2016 description

KEY DRIVERS OF THE CRISIS

Poverty, demographic pressure and recurrent shocks (droughts, floods, epidemics, and high food prices) are among the key causes of vulnerability amongst households and communities.

Insecurity in neighboring countries, notably Mali and Nigeria, has led to displacements to Niger. In addition, the country is experiencing internal displacement of people due to armed attacks by insurgents that have been occurring in Diffa since Feb 2015.

29 Apr 2016 description

KEY DRIVERS OF THE CRISIS*

Continued forced displacement, killing and secuirty incidents due to insurgency situation.

An estimated 13.7 million people are affected by the food insecurity in the northern parts of Nigeria, including 7 million in the Northeast states of Adamawa, Borno, Yobe - out of which 2.5 million are in urgent need of food assistance.

Unproportionate resources to address the needs of displaced families such as shelter, health care, WASH, NFIs, education and psychosocial support.

29 Apr 2016 description

KEY DRIVERS OF THE CRISIS

Endemic of food insecurity due to crop failure/ poor harvest, rising food prices and loss of livelihoods as a result of frequent natural disasters (droughts, floods).

Lack of integrated early warning systems to facilitate early response and assist affected populations to cope better with shocks.

Poor sanitation and access to clean water are main causes of waterborne diseases. Prevalence of epidemics, lack of access to adequate health services and poor health service delivery.

29 Apr 2016 description

KEY DRIVERS OF THE CRISIS

Food insecurity aggravated by chronic drought and negative coping strategies, in the context of limited capacity. Malnutrition is not only linked to food insecurity, but also caused by poor eating habits.

Recent and former population displacement due to conflicts in neighboring CAR, Libya, Nigeria, and Sudan (security volatility around Chad).

Lack of functional health facilities and qualified medical staff (only 450 doctors for 13.2 million people), poor sanitation and limited access to clean water and basic services.

29 Apr 2016 description

KEY DRIVERS OF THE CRISIS

Recurring natural disasters such as droughts and floods combined with the volatility of markets, pushed many households and communities into chronic vulnerability.

Conflict in northern Nigeria and CAR continue to displace refugees to Cameroon, and causes internal displacements. In addition, increasing insecurity in the far North of Cameroon and along the border of CAR hampers humanitarian access.

Poor coverage of sanitation and access to clean water remain the main causes of malnutrition and water-borne diseases

29 Apr 2016 description

KEY DRIVERS OF THE CRISIS

Chronic structural vulnerabilities compounded by recurrent shocks (droughts, floods, epidemics, locusts) have eroded household and community resilience that need to be reinforced.

Prolonged displacement puts additional stress on the communities hosting 33,692 Malian refugees since 2012 and 15,088 of their animals.
