Dear Colleagues,

Chad ranks 185 out of 188 on the Human Development Index and 6th on the Fragile State Index. 55% of Chad’s population of approximately 13.2 million people live below the poverty line. OCHA’s Humanitarian Response Plan for 2016 indicates that four major crises directly affect 3.9 million people in Chad. These are: food security and nutrition, displacement, health emergencies and natural disasters.

Chad ranks 185 out of 188 on the Human Development Index and takes the 6 th position on the Fragile State Index. In this precarious context, Chad hosts millions of vulnerable people, displaced by violence and conflict in neighbouring countries. Boko Haram attacks in Nigeria, Northern Cameroon and within Chad now exacerbate the challenges of humanitarian response.

1. Brief description of the emergency and impact

Increasing attacks of Boko Haram, the religious extremist group, throughout Nigeria and more recently in the North East of the country led to the serious deterioration of the security situation in the three states of Borno, Yobe and KL Adamaoua. This unstable security situation has contributed to the displacement of the populations which resulted in the influx of refugees in Cameroon’s far north region since June 10, 2013.

In the heat of the afternoon, Aissata Kantao sits in the shade of a tree in front of her home, the sound of children playing in the sandy street rebounding off the dirt walls that characterise Timbuktu, the city in northern Mali where she grew up. It’s also the city she was forced to flee when Islamist extremists took control and quieted the children, covered the women, and imposed a regime of terror.

Boubanar Traore wants desperately to go back to his home in northern Mali but doesn’t know how he would survive there. So he sits in a camp for displaced families in the south of the country, waiting and hoping that things will soon change.

A mechanic, his tools got left behind when he and his family fled in the middle of the night from the village of Hombori in 2012 after Islamist rebels killed the town’s chief. The Islamists seized most of Mali’s north before being driven out by French troops earlier this year.

Dear Colleagues,

The 2011 drought in the Sahel region and the military operations in Mali launched by France and other African countries in January 2013 have led to the increase of Malian refugees hosted in the Mbera Camp in Mauritania. As of April 21, 2013, the total number of Malian refugees in Mbera Camp was 74,452 people1 which included 21,636 refugees arriving between January and March 2013. The presence of Malian refugees in the drought-affected area has further put pressure on the scarce resources (including food, water, social facilities, fire wood, etc.).

Dear Colleagues,

Chad has experienced chronic instability since its independence in 1960 and was heavily affected by conflicts in neighbouring countries such as Sudan, the Central African Republic and recently Libya. The outbreak of the Darfur crisis in 2003 has caused a major influx of Sudanese refugees and a flare-up of internal fighting had resulted in more than 180,000 internally displaced people (IDPs) within Chad.

The escalating conflict in Mali between French-backed government forces and Tuareg and Islamist rebels is creating a new wave of civilian displacement that is straining already scarce resources and deepening the humanitarian crisis in Mali and neighbouring countries, says ACT Alliance General Secretary John Nduna.

Mauritania and the neighbouring countries (mainly Mali and Senegal) have been affected by the ongoing Sahel food crisis characterised by food insecurity and malnutrition due to drought and other underlying factors in the region. It has been projected that 800,000 people in Mauritania, will need humanitarian assistance in 2012.

In addition to the drought situation, the ongoing armed conflict in Northern Mali has forced thousands of Malians to cross the border to Mauritania.
