The Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) allocates US $ 11 million to assist
147,000 people in southern Chad and maintain humanitarian access

(N'djamena, 16 November 2017): The United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian
Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, Mr. Mark Lowcock, has approved the allocation of US $ 11
million from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) for humanitarian action in Chad. The
funds provided will help meet the vital needs of 147,000 people, including returnees and refugees from
the Central African Republic and their host communities, in four southern regions of the country. This
new funding follows a first allocation of US $ 10 million in September 2016 in the same region to cover
the priority needs of the most vulnerable populations.

The Moyen-Chari, Mandoul, Logone Oriental and Logone Occidental regions remain deeply affected by
the impact of the Central African crisis, with several new populations influxes in 2017. Faced with the
gradual withdrawal of humanitarian partners due to an increased lack of funding, the living conditions
and livelihoods of affected populations have been deteriorating, especially in displacement sites.
