Western & Central Africa
Chad is prone to drought, floods, storms, insect infestation and epidemics. In 2013, 2.4 million people were at risk of food insecurity, aggravated by the poor agricultural production in the Sahel, and 32.000 people were affected by floods. In terms of climate change, although some forecasts suggest an increase in water resources south of the basins studied, some experts nonetheless envisage a significant decrease in rainfall in traditionally dry areas of the north and east. A general trend to desertification is already observable.
In 2013, at the government request, the CADRI Partnership facilitated a national DRR capacity assessment exercise with a strong emphasis on preparedness for emergency response and institutional arrangements. The prioritization process supported by the CADRI Partnership resulted in the articulation of a National Action Plan to strengthen Capacities for DRR, Preparedness and Response to Emergencies (2015 -2020).
