Understanding Hunger - Chad
Chad is an arid, low-income and landlocked country, suffering from chronic food insecurity. Conflict in neighboring countries has put additional pressure on already limited resources. Since 2003, Chad has been receiving refugees from neighboring countries, welcoming around 450,000 long-term refugees from Sudan and Central African Republic (C.A.R). Due to limited resources and recurrent climate shocks in the Sahelian belt, the country struggles to tackle malnutrition and precarious health issues. Chad has become more volatile to crisis in neighboring countries, such as Sudan, Libya, C.A.R. and currently Nigeria.
