The Humanitarian Country Team in Chad is expecting a humanitarian caseload of over 4.4 million people in 2017. This includes 389,000 refugees, primarily from CAR and Nigeria, and over 105,000 IDPs. The situation is particularly precarious in the Lac region, where over 250,000 people are affected by the regional conflict involving Boko Haram. Food insecurity across the Sahel belt of the country affects 1.8 million people. In 2016, humanitarian actors in Chad sharply improved the lives of displaced and other vulnerable people. For example, over 130,000 children with severe acute malnutrition were admitted for therapeutic care and over 600,000 people received food assistance. Much remains to be done to improve food security and nutritional status in Chad. The national global acute malnutrition (GAM) rate, currently at 11.9 per cent, and the SAM rate of 2.6 per cent, both exceed alert and emergency thresholds. Underfunding in 2017 will hinder plans to provide desperately needed treatment for 400,000 malnourished girls and boys under 5 years of age. Hundreds of thousands of women and men affected by the conflict in the Lac region will go without assistance and protection. Over 4 million food insecure people in Chad will be unable to meet the needs of their families, especially during the lean season.

In response to the Lake Chad Basin and CAR crisis, IOM will provide psychosocial support services focused on capacity building of local actors, semi-durable housing, and durable solutions (socio-economic part) for those displaced by the crises.
