Tchad : Contextes et enjeux humanitaires majeurs - Aperçu humanitaire (au 15 Octobre 2014)

Le Tchad fait face aujourd’hui à de nombreux enjeux humanitaires complexes. Une instabilité récurrente et des conflits successifs dans les pays limitrophes ont provoqué des mouvements de population de grande envergure vers le Tchad, qui arrive à la septième place des pays accueillant le plus grand nombre de réfugiés.

Parallèlement à cette crise, il existe des besoins humanitaires chroniques liés à la pauvreté et au sous-développement. L’insécurité alimentaire et la malnutrition affectent des millions de personnes, en particulier dans la bande sahélienne.
