Titre : Protracted Relief and Recovery Operation – Chad

Targeted Food Assistance for Refugees and Vulnerable People Affected by Malnutrition and Recurrent Food Crises

Number of beneficiaries : 1,655,000 (2012) 1,631,000 (2013)

Pays : Tchad

Durée : 1 January 2012–31 December 2013

Internal and border conflicts in Chad have caused political instability and insecurity, hindering economic and social recovery since 2003. The population is highly vulnerable to shocks and exposed to high risks of food crises and disasters, with 44 percent of rural households facing food insecurity. _ Acute and chronic malnutrition exceed the “critical” and “very high” thresholds in most regions. Nearly 320,000 people from the Sudan and the Central African Republic have taken refuge in Chad, while 180,000 people have been internally displaced. Although the displaced Chadians are being integrated into their new communities, no lasting solution for the refugees is in sight owing to the precarious political situation and security in their areas of origin. WFP and its partners will implement a programme aimed at meeting the needs of refugees, vulnerable households, and people suffering from malnutrition due to recurrent crises in the Sahelian belt.

The principal objectives are to :
1. reduce the prevalence of acute malnutrition in children under 5 and pregnant and lactating women (Strategic Objective 1) ;
2. ensure adequate food consumption in households facing food insecurity and targeted refugees (Strategic Objective 1) ;
3. support the livelihoods of targeted communities in order to strengthen their resilience to shocks and weather shocks (Strategic Objective 2) ;
4. restore the livelihoods and food security of communities and households by promoting access to productive assets after conflict (Strategic Objective 3) ; and
5. strengthen the Government’s capacity to reduce food insecurity by supporting activities related to early warning and response to food crises, and promoting local purchase (Strategic Objective 5).

Geographical targeting is based on a comprehensive food security and vulnerability assessment by WFP in 2009 complemented with updated data from emergency food security assessments in the Sahelian belt and the south of Chad. The regions of Kanem, Bahr-El-Gazal, Batha and Guéra register the highest rates of food insecurity. Eastern Chad has large numbers of refugees and displaced populations now assimilated into local communities. In the south, refugees and vulnerable host populations will be assisted. Targeted supplementary feeding will be provided in regions where acute malnutrition exceeds 10 percent, and general feeding wherever it exceeds 15 percent.
