Every year, Chad confronts the lean season (the period between harvests, between May and September). During these months, households have little or no food stocks and vulnerable people resort to negative coping strategies that are harmful for their health (reduction of number and quality of meals) and that are likely to undermine their fragile livelihoods, such as selling productive assets.

Summary

The humanitarian crisis in the Lake Chad Basin is among the most severe in the world, with more than 10 million people in urgent need of life-saving assistance and protection. Yet, it is critical that we urgently scale up development interventions to strengthen resilience in the region, help people and communities recover as quickly as possible and prevent a further deterioration of the crisis.

Household food consumption in the Sahel deteriorates during the lean season

KEY MESSAGES

• Poor harvests in 2017–2018 in the Lac, Kanem, Barh el Gazel, Batha, Wadi Fira, Guéra and Hadjer Lamis regions have caused depletion of stocks earlier than usual. This has brought about an early lean season and prolonged dependence on the markets. Household incomes are below average due to the financial crisis, meaning that the consumption deficit cannot be covered.

Executive Summary [English]

Rainfall anomalies during the 2017 year and an ongoing economic crisis have negatively impacted the livelihoods of rural households in Chad, including agriculture, livestock, and nonfarm income activities. This has driven a deterioration in food and nutrition security across the majority of Chad’s Sahelian belt. In some regions, the rainy season was characterized by prolonged dry spells and an early end, which resulted in a 2.1% decrease in national cereal production compared to the five-year average and 5.1% reduction compared to last year’s levels.

La consommation alimentaire des ménages du Sahel se détériore pendant la soudure

MESSAGES CLÉS

• Les faibles récoltes de 2017-2018 dans les régions du Lac, Kanem, BEG, Batha, Wadi Fira, Guéra et Hadjer Lamis ont entrainé un épuisement des stocks plus tôt que d'habitude. Cela a entraîné une soudure précoce et une dépendance prolongée aux marchés. Les revenus des ménages sont inférieurs à la moyenne en raison de la crise financière, ne permettant pas de combler le déficit de consommation.

I am increasingly concerned by the situation in the Sahel. In Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania, Niger and Senegal, nearly 6 million people are struggling to meet their daily food needs. Severe malnutrition threatens the lives of 1.6 million children. These are levels unseen since the crisis of 2012, and the most critical months are still ahead.

To prevent vulnerable communities from sliding deeper into food insecurity and malnutrition, the World Food Programme (WFP) and its partners deliver food and nutritional assistance throughout the lean season. WFP provides life-saving food and nutritional support to some 700,000 vulnerable Chadians. Among them, some 131,084 people-at-risk (87,384 children aged 6-23 months and 43,695 pregnant and lactating women) receive specialized nutritious foods and social behaviour change measures on key nutrition and health family practices to prevent malnutrition.
