In Chad, 4.7 million people – or one third of the population – are acutely vulnerable and need humanitarian assistance to get by. This is due to forced displacement and chronic drought, combined with pervasive poverty and institutional fragility. Amid these challenges, refugees, internally displaced people (IDPs) and the host communities who are their lifeline, do all they can to survive, with support from the Government and its humanitarian partners. But they also need longer-term, sustainable solutions so they can become more resilient to future shocks.

The targeting of ethnic and religious minorities, including women and children, has resurfaced. Killings and attacks against communities have been multiplying. Today, CAR is on the brink of sliding back into the same level of violence that led to the last conflict.
