Chad, a landlocked country in the heart of Africa, is faced with a multidimensional migration context.

The country experiences a complex humanitarian crisis , being affected by conflict in neighbouring countries (Central African Republic, Sudan, Libya and the Lake Chad basin), and currently hosting 464,000 refugees, 133,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs) and 45,000 returnees.  In conjunction, internal food security and economic crisis, severe underdevelopment and extreme poverty, lead young people in particular to seek economic opportunities under increasingly precarious conditions.

Although faced with multiple challenges, Chad is the first country to have contextualized the Global Compact for Migration in line with its National Development Plan and has emphasized its  commitment to the 2030 SDGs and AU 2063 plan through initiatives that focus on engaging the diaspora, understanding and improving remittance management, developing and reviewing policy related to protection of migrants and improvement of migration-related data (including border management, flow monitoring etc.).

The IOM Mission in Chad was established in 2009 and continues to work in coordination with the Chadian authorities and local partners in various fields. Today, the mission implements activities focused on  community stabilization, humanitarian assistance (shelter, non-food item kits distribution, displacement tracking, camp management), durable solutions for displaced populations (resettlement, assisted voluntary 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 Bol, Baga Sola, Faya, Farchana, Goré, Sarh, Sido and Zouarké. IOM in Chad is a member of the United Nations Country Team.
