The project aims to improve access to essential production services and to markets for pastoralists in selected border regions and along key transport routes.

It will be concentrated in 12 regions in central and northern Chad.

“Due to certain crises that have been witnessed in the Sahel, the project constitutes an opportunity for the development of livestock keeping and the Chadian economy in general,” Taher said.

World Bank’s operations director in Chad Paul Noumba Um said the project will help to increase the area under livestock pasture by 750,000 hectares and reduce the distance between water points from 40 to 25 km. Enditem
