The Republic of Chad is a landlocked country in Central Africa. It shares a border with Libya, Nigeria, Niger, Sudan, Cameroon and CAR. Its post-colonial history has been marked by instability and civil unrest between different ethnic groups. The impacts of desertification caused by climate change are adding to the existing challenges as are conflicts in neighbouring countries. Chad became an oil producing country in 2003, however poverty is rife and social conditions are considerably worse than other African nations.
