IOM IN YOUR COUNTRY

Overview 

Chad currently hosts over 440,000 refugees and nearly 130,000 internally displaced persons (IDOs and IDP returnees) in the eastern western and southern parts of the country. The vast migration of populations from neighbouring countries including Nigeria, the Central African Republic and Sudan is largely due to challenging political dynamics and socio-economic problems leading to conflict and constant insecurity in the region. In addition, food insecurity associated with inconsistent rains and failed harvest has made a large impact on both internal and external migration patterns.

Moreover, Chad is increasingly witnessing migration route changes throughout the country with movements towards Libya and the gold mines in northern Chad steadily increasing.

The IOM Mission in Chad was established in 2009. The mission is works in coordination with the Chadian authorities and local partners in various fields, including community stabilization, humanitarian assistance (shelter, NFI, Displacement tracking, camp management), durable solutions for displaced populations (resettlement, durable return), engagement with diaspora members, border management, peacebuilding and mediation, counter-trafficking and management of transhumance. 

The Mission’s main office is in N’Djamena with field offices in Faya, Kalait, Zouarke, Bol, Goré, Farchana and Baga Sola. IOM Chad is a member of the United Nations Country Team.
