Tchad-IOM, Contr. (SUD) 2023

This contribution aims at supporting IOM’s response to the needs of Chadian returnees having fled Sudan. IOM’s emergency response supports the returnees’ households through a nexus approach, which combines emergency humanitarian assistance (shelter, NFIs, etc,) and livelihood support to reduce their dependency on humanitarian assistance, therefore contributing to local and more sustainable development.

As the violence increases, especially in the Darfur region, the number of incoming returnees is expected to rise to 80,000. In addition, 135 third-country nationals fleeing Sudan have found safety in Chad since the start of the conflict.
