Key Developments

Chad released a small amount of land in 2020 but also substantially increased its estimate of anti-personnel mine contamination. Measures to contain COVID-19, including tight travel restrictions and closure of the international airport, halted operations for several months.


Recommendations for Action

  • The National High Commission for Demining (HCND) should set out clear plans detailing the priority areas to be targeted for non-technical survey along with timelines for implementation.
  • The HCND should ensure that demining assets are deployed to clear areas with known mine contamination.
  • Chad should intensify and report on resource mobilisation to secure and diversify funding and attract international technical and operational support.
