Our activities in Chad
As everywhere else in Africa, Chad has a weak institutional structure that favors political "favoritism” or personal relationships and disfunctions in the national system at large. The inauguration (July 2003) of the Doba-Kribi pipeline made it possible to begin exploiting the substantial oil resources in the southern part of the country, but the economy is still based mainly on agriculture and herding. Food insecurity and conflicts between sedentary and Christians farmers, on the one hand, and agro-pastoralists and semi-nomadic Muslims now beoming sedentary, on the other hand, are a chronic feature in Chad and constitute a key issue for human development.
Our project was financed with private funds. It took into account the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and was part of various national programs, such as: the National Food Security Programme (NFSP), which aims at sustainable increases in productivity and levels of production while preserving basic natural resources; the Agriculture Development Scheme (AGS), which pursues the goal of food security; and finally the Programme for the Community Managament of Ecosystems(PCME). ) It also contributed to the achievement of certain priority activities included among the objectives set forth in the National Poverty Reduction Strategy (NPRS), which promoted decentralization, crop protection and cooperation between farmers and breeders, improved diversification and sustainable growth of rural production, facilitated access to other forms of social economy and solidarity, and lastly helps to reduce the phenomenon of the rural exodus.
