I was in Oslo last year to the first effort we made, really, internationally, to bring the conversation on the region together with the international community to tackle all these underlying causes. The Oslo meeting was a big success, thank you again for that.

It is already clear to me that we have an opportunity, and a probability I think, building on that success in Oslo, here in Berlin. Thank you very much to all the co-hosts for the work that has put us in that position.

The major constraint to the humanitarian response and development in the Lac region – and across Chad – is severe under-funding. Chad’s humanitarian

Response plans have been underfunded for years. Similarly to neighboring countries, humanitarian needs in Chad remain high into 2018. One third of the population, more than 4.4 million people, requires humanitarian assistance. Over the last ten years, close to 60% of the humanitarian response has been funded by two donors.

It is time for more donors to act and scale up their support.
