Chad is one of the poorest countries in the world and still an anchor of stability in the Region. At the same time, Chad is hosting hundreds of thousands of refugees from neighbouring countries. Chad is also currently hosting more than 650,000 displaced people, including 449,000 refugees, 124,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs), 81,000 returnees, and 1,300 third country nationals (HRP 2019). This is compounded by an ongoing period of severe social and economic tensions affecting Chad, and a near exhaustion of host communities’ absorption capacities while more people continue to arrive from neighbouring countries. IOM Chad boosted its activities for the benefit of the most vulnerable migrants during the last months of 2018 and will continue to increase its interventions in 2019.

IOM's Humanitarian engagement in 2019 will be focused in several integrated activities. One of the most important priorities will be the strengthening and expansion of DTM activities and Flow Monitoring with the aim to serve with more complex and complete data. The Humanitarian Community is working assiduously to provide timely and real information. IOM Chad will also build on this data a response plan to provide assistance in terms of durable Shelters, durable solution and NFI distributions to the most vulnerable people overcoming the discrimination by status and aiding migrants, displaced people and host communities. Particular attention will be given to people on the move with a Search and Rescue (SAR) plan in the northern regions of the country where migrants are often victims of trafficking or become stranded in one of the most hostile regions of the world. These persons are to also benefit from the in-kind assistance of food and non-food items, psychological support, GBV counselling and assisted returns. At a Governance level, one of the priorities for IOM Chad is to advocate the application of international policies on counter-trafficking. In order to mitigate the impact of natural and anthropic disaster on people, causing forced migrations, IOM Chad will also work on disaster preparedness and disaster mitigation starting from the risk and resource knowledge of the territory to the elaboration of a DRR programme with a focus on climate-change related migrations phenomenon.

IOM Chad is a co-lead in the CCCM/Shelter/NFI Cluster. It contributes actively to the strategic planning in all Humanitarian Response planning. IOM Chad has a mandate to deliver information and report about displaced people in the country. IOM Chad also works in partnership with the National Commission for the Reception and Reintegration of Refugees and Returnees (CNARR) to strengthen its capacities to address displaced people’s needs. The Chadian Red Cross and the University of N'djamena are partners in implemented activities. IOM Chad coordinates NFI distribution activities in the Lake within the CCCM/Shelter/NFI sub-cluster and ICC.

Note the projects below are conceived according to the CCCM/Shelter/NFI Cluster strategy and are part of the annual Chad Humanitarian Response Plan 2019.
