Welcome! The World Bank In Chad
Jean-Claude Brou, Country Manager in Chad

Following the reopening of our office in January 2009, the staff has been working hard to ensure the smooth running   of our operations. Our goal is to reach rapidly the cruising speed in our activities. In this context, a new Interim Strategy Note (ISN) which has been discussed by the Board in July 2010   provides the framework for Bank's operations during the June 2010 to June 2012 period. The ISN will serve to strengthen the relationship between the Bank and the country, and will accompany the government in the implementation of its NRSP II. The focus will be on the development of a heightened understanding of Chad's complex development challenges and opportunities. In addition, the dialogue with national stakeholders and international development partners will also be reinforced.

The proposed strategy for Bank's engagement covers three main axes: strengthening governance and public financial management; improving access to key social services; and improving regional integration.

 Chad is a poor country. While some progress has been made in recent years, substantial efforts remain to be made towards the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), The Bank will work closely with the government, various stakeholders, and international development partners, to reduce poverty in the country.

The current Bank portfolio in Chad consists of eight projects and represents a total of US$144 million in commitments. Current operations cover the following sectors: urban development, community development, education, health,   public financial management, transport, telecommunications, and environment.
