Overview

24/05/2019

Since 2013, Chad has been one of the main host countries for refugees fleeing conflict and its effects in   Central African Republic (CAR). As of March 2019, approximately 100,000 CAR refugees are hosted in six camps and 17 villages across southern Chad. ? The most affected regions are Logone Oriental, Moyen Chari, Mandoul, and Salamat regions. ? Though many households have been in protracted displacement for several years, the CAR refugee population in Chad also encompasses relatively new arrivals. Between 2018 and 2019, a spike in violence and insecurity in northern CAR led to a significant influx of more than 21,000 new arrivals. ?

CAR refugees in Chad, particularly new arrivals, face elevated humanitarian needs across a number of different sectors including food, shelter, protection, health, and WASH. Among new arrivals in non-camp settings, more than 80% of households are estimated to be food insecure.  ? Across the total CAR refugee population in Chad, approximately 20% lack access to adequate shelter.  ? Delivery of humanitarian assistance to CAR refugees and host communities in Chad is hampered by a number of constraints, including a persistent lack of funding for response efforts and reduced humanitarian access to some areas, particularly during the rainy season. ?
