La situation alimentaire reste inquiétante au Tchad. Selon l’analyse du Cadre Harmonisé 2015, 3,4 millions de personnes sont affectées par l’insécurité alimentaire dont 83 000 personnes en phase 4 et 580 000 en phase 3. Ces personnes ont besoin d’une assistance humanitaire d’urgence. 2,7 millions de personnes se trouvent en phase 2 et nécessitent un soutien pour développer leur résilience et moyens d’existence pour ne pas retomber dans une phase plus grave.
In 2015, over 3 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance out of which 2.5 million have been targeted by the humanitarian community for assistance. This represents nearly 20 percent of the population (13.2 million), indicative of the high levels of vulnerability throughout the country.
