Chad, Bol, Lake Chad Basin (Bol region), 31 March 2017

CHAD
Chad in Central Africa has one of the highest levels of hunger in the world. Around 87 percent of its mainly rural population lives below the poverty line. High levels of poverty have been exacerbated by numerous conflicts and climate-related disasters over the past 50 years.
People depend on farming and livestock for their livelihoods, but agriculture is challenging as the El Niño weather phenomenon is making rainy seasons unpredictable. This places even more strain on vulnerable families living in the Sahelian belt. Around 11.7 percent of children under five are stunted, with low height for their age caused by chronic malnutrition. Maternal health is poor, with high maternal mortality rates due to inadequate access to health services. Access to basic education is also limited.
An influx of hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing conflict in neighbouring countries has put additional pressure on Chad’s already limited resources. In particular, refugees, displaced people and other poor communities in the Lake Chad basin are dependent on humanitarian assistance for survival.

LAKE CHAD
Coupled with the existing challenges of extreme poverty, underdevelopment and climate change in the Lake Chad region, Boko Haram violence has led to one of the most acute – and sorely neglected – humanitarian crises in the world.
Some 7.1 million people need food assistance across four countries (Chad, Cameroon, Niger and Nigeria) up from 3 million one year ago; as malnutrition rises to alarming levels in all four countries, over half a million children are suffering from severe acute malnutrition. Across the Lake Chad region, some 2.4 million people have been forced to flee their homes. The majority have found shelter within host communities who were already among the poorest in the world. 

The World Food Programme (WFP) runs a variety of operations in Lake Chad, with focus gradually shifting from emergency relief to strengthening the country’s long-term resilience. In our mission to reduce food insecurity and malnutrition in Chad, we work alongside the Government other UN agencies and partners. WFP is providing nutritional support to vulnerable populations in the Lake Chad Region including through school meals initiatives, Blanket Supplementary Feeding,  cash-based transfers, Mother and Child Health and Nutrition (MCHN) support.

UNHAS
WFP manages the UN Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS) on behalf of the humanitarian community in Chad, with 19 destinations throughout the country served by four aircraft carrying personnel and light cargo. Over 120 humanitarian organizations rely on UNHAS to carry out their vital work in Chad.

Chad, Bol, Lake Chad Basin (Bol region), 31 March 2017  CHAD
Chad in Central Africa has one of the highest levels of hunger in the world. Around 87 percent of its mainly rural population lives below the poverty line. High levels of poverty have been exacerbated by numerous conflicts and climate-related disasters over the past 50 years.
People depend on farming and livestock for their livelihoods, but agriculture is challenging as the El Niño weather phenomenon is making rainy seasons unpredictable. This places even more strain on vulnerable families living in the Sahelian belt. Around 11.7 percent of children under five are stunted, with low height for their age caused by chronic malnutrition. Maternal health is poor, with high maternal mortality rates due to inadequate access to health services. Access to basic education is also limited.
An influx of hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing conflict in neighbouring countries has put additional pressure on Chad’s already limited resources. In particular, refugees, displaced people and other poor communities in the Lake Chad basin are dependent on humanitarian assistance for survival.

LAKE CHAD
Coupled with the existing challenges of extreme poverty, underdevelopment and climate change in the Lake Chad region, Boko Haram violence has led to one of the most acute – and sorely neglected – humanitarian crises in the world.
Some 7.1 million people need food assistance across four countries (Chad, Cameroon, Niger and Nigeria) up from 3 million one year ago; as malnutrition rises to alarming levels in all four countries, over half a million children are suffering from severe acute malnutrition. Across the Lake Chad region, some 2.4 million people have been forced to flee their homes. The majority have found shelter within host communities who were already among the poorest in the world. 

The World Food Programme (WFP) runs a variety of operations in Lake Chad, with focus gradually shifting from emergency relief to strengthening the country’s long-term resilience. In our mission to reduce food insecurity and malnutrition in Chad, we work alongside the Government other UN agencies and partners. WFP is providing nutritional support to vulnerable populations in the Lake Chad Region including through school meals initiatives, Blanket Supplementary Feeding,  cash-based transfers, Mother and Child Health and Nutrition (MCHN) support.

UNHAS
WFP manages the UN Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS) on behalf of the humanitarian community in Chad, with 19 destinations throughout the country served by four aircraft carrying personnel and light cargo. Over 120 humanitarian organizations rely on UNHAS to carry out their vital work in Chad.
