This advocacy note, signed by Plan International alongside the International Organisation for Migration and 4 other Non-Governmental Organisations, suggests 3 main recommendations to protect displaced people in eastern Chad.

  • Continue to support the Government of Chad to protect displaced populations and facilitate the reintegration of Chadian returnees into their country of nationality.
  • Increase funding levels to meet the heightened needs in eastern Chad in 2024. This funding must include the returnee population to enable a multisectoral, emergency response in returnee sites. Funding for sustainable, long-term programming is also needed to bolster social cohesion and community resilience within returnee and host communities.
  • Prioritise the delivery of conflict-sensitive assistance for returnees, refugees, and host communities that takes into consideration age, gender and disability needs and reflects the distinct concerns of the returnee community.
