Movements of populations continue to be a humanitarian issue to be addressed in Chad. Around 150,000 Chadian returnees from Libya have arrived since Libya Crisis in 2011, and sporadic arrivals continue in Faya-Largeau and areas of difficult humanitarian access in the northern mine-affected Tibesti region. Following tribal clashes in Darfur during the course of 2013, an influx of around 25,000 Sudanese refugees and 22,757 Chadian returnees have arrived at the border town of Tissi in the South East of the country. Political instability in the CAR has sent a new wave of about 12,000 refugees in the Chadian region of Gore and Moissala since January 2013 and 8,900 have been integrated into existing camps in southern Chad, bringing the total figure of CAR refugees to 67,435. Additionally, more than 1,000 Chadian returnees fleeing the CAR crisis have also arrived in Tissi. Claches between Nigerian Military and armed groups in northern Nigeria have caused an influx of about 3,500 returnees and 553 Nigerian refugees in the Lake Chad region. Some 90,000 former IDPs and 91,000 internal returnees, reintegrated and relocated are still in need for assistance.Despite good harvest during the 2012/2013 agricultural season, an increase of 54% of the five-year average, 2.3 million people remain food-insecure in Chad, including 1.2 million people at risk of extreme food insecurity
