The Republic of Chad is faced with extreme climate events which, depending on the season and the bioclimatic zone, may take the form of increasingly severe droughts or increasingly devastating floods. Vulnerability to such events is all the more critical since existing administrative structures (ministries, government agencies and local government) lack human and financial resources, capacities and means of action to respond. Climate change impacts are felt in agriculture, livestock breeding, fisheries, health, housing and more areas.
A national adaptation programme of action (NAPA) was published in 2009. However, resources for its implementation are still lacking. Generally speaking, the Republic of Chad does not currently have adequate institutional resources to make full use of financing mechanisms under the UNFCCC and implement adaptation and mitigation projects and measures. The GCCA intervention aims to help the country address some of these gaps.
