The British Office in N’Djamena maintains and develops relations between the UK and Chad.
We work closely with diplomatic partners, the UN (including on the UN Security Council) and other agencies to support Chad’s development following the country’s emergence from conflict in 2009. We also engage with the Chadian government on wider issues in the Sahel, including development and counter-terrorism, recent events in Mali, and on Sudan.
The Department for International Development (DFID)’s ‘Providing Humanitarian Assistance in Sahel Emergencies’ programme has supported over 1.5 million people in the Sahel with life-saving humanitarian aid since 2015; and over 1.8 million people with the effect of climate change and other major shocks. In addition to humanitarian support, UK Aid in Chad is supporting populations to build events in some of the most climate-vulnerable regions of Chad alongside providing support to build adaptive social protection systems for those communities who are most at risk. Read more about DFID’s work in the Sahel.
