Essentially a rural country, Chad ranks among the 10 poorest countries in terms of human development. However, in recent years, the country has experienced high growth due to its oil industry.
The security situation in the region remains a cause for concern: crises in Sudan, the Central African Republic, Libya, along with the actions of the terrorist organisation Boko Haram are exacerbating an already complex humanitarian situation. The country already hosts some 500,000 people who have fled neighbouring crises and are living in extremely vulnerable situations.
Chad has a population of around 14 million people, with 47% living beneath the poverty threshold, according to the World Bank.
