Chad Climate Change

Resources are scarce in eastern Chad, where 250,000 Darfuri refugees settled to escape conflict in Sudan. Each year the rainy season seems to be shorter and shorter, and the Sahara continues to advance, eating away at the Sahel’s ecosystem. Tensions between locals and refugees are palpable, as they clash over access to water, and firewood for cooking. Local NGO’s travel more than 60 kilometres daily in search of fallen trees, sometimes crossing the border into Sudan. Meanwhile, ongoing conflicts threaten the security of the entire region.
