1- Background and rationale
Note de synthèse des principaux résultats provisoires | Septembre 2017
1- Contexte et justifications
More than 4,000 Chadian refugees are ready to return to their home country after seeking refuge in Darfur for more than a decade. On 18 December 2017, UNHCR and the Governments of Sudan and Chad began assisting the refugees with transportation and return packages. The first convoy which had 301 refugees, left Um Shalya camp in Central Darfur State heading to Chad.
Chad is a low-income, land-locked country that suffers from chronic food insecurity due to the effects of regional conflict, frequent drought, lack of income-generating opportunities and limited access to social services. An estimated 4.7 million people in Chad require humanitarian assistance, according to the 2017 Humanitarian Response Plan.
Persons of concern - refugees, asylum seekers, IDPs and returnees - for UNHCR operations in Chad.
Refugees interviewed by the French Office for the Protection of Refugees and Stateless persons (OFPRA) for potential resettlement.

• As part of celebrations of the 2017 World Food Day, WFP Chad and ECHO organized an exhibition on “the family meal: what brings us together?” Held in N’Djamena from 16 to 21 October 2017, collected photographs tell the story of a typical Chadian household and explain why it is essential to empower women at household levels and ensure that children have access to adequate nutritional support during the first 1,000 days of their lives.

La population totale des réfugiés et demandeurs d’asile est passée de 409.264 en Octobre 2017 à 410.710 personnes en fin novembre 2017. Ceci représente une augmentation globale de 1.446 personnes due essentiellement aux activités de l'enregistrement continu.
UNICEF and its partners continued to respond to the cholera outbreak in the regions of Sila and Salamat. At the end of October 2017, 708 cases of which 23 deaths (death rate of 3.82%) were reported.
Chad, one of the poorest countries in the world, faces numerous challenges: food and nutrition insecurity, forced population displacement, climate change (especially drought), epidemics and chronic poverty. The security situation in neighbouring countries has led to significant movements of people to Chad. The country also has recurrent epidemics (hepatitis E, cholera) and thousands of malaria cases that have a direct impact on the morbidity and mortality of children under five.
