The volatile security situation combined with a lack of infrastructure restricts humanitarian access. Assault and looting of humanitarian vehicles has been reported in the eastern, southern, and western regions, making it difficult for aid workers to use certain routes. Sporadic incidents of landmine explosions in the Borkou, Ennedi, and Tibesti regions were also recorded. Organisations face challenges due to the lack of government control in Lac and Tibesti regions, where armed groups maintain control. Interference into humanitarian activities also remains a concern with lengthy registration and visa processes continuing to impede access and entry into the country.
