Chad

On 3 May 2018, the Republic of Chad announced its formal application of the CRRF through a letter signed by the Minister of Territorial Administration, Public Security and Local Governance. The CRRF will build on the commitments of the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants and the Government’s generous pledges made at the UN Leaders’ Summit on Refugees in September 2016.

The Chadian Government specifically pledged to: 

  1. Improve access to secondary education for approx. 75,000 refugee children in eastern Chad by: a) providing textbooks to schools hosting refugees; b) accrediting qualified refugee teachers and allowing them to teach in camp, public, and private schools; and c) increasing the number of qualified teachers in public schools with refugee students.
  2. Facilitate refugees’ access to tertiary education by encouraging universities to offer refugees the same tuition as Chadian students.
  3. Facilitate access to arable land for up to 236,000 refugees and support refugees and the host community in agricultural activities by strengthening the system of agricultural technicians.
  4. Issue birth certificates for an estimated 140,000 refugee children born before 2013.
  5. Adopt the National Law governing the status of refugees and asylum seekers, which will ensure compliance with international and regional instruments for refugee protection.

The full list of Chad’s pledges can be found here.

More detailed information on the roll-out of a comprehensive refugee response in Chad will follow soon.
