1. Overview

#france #gambia #ghana #libya #sudan

Chad, part of France's African holdings until 1960, endured three decades of civil warfare as well as invasions by Libya before a semblance of peace was finally restored in 1990. The government eventually drafted a democratic constitution and held flawed presidential elections in 1996 and 2001. In 1998, a rebellion broke out in northern Chad, which has sporadically flared up despite several peace agreements between the government and the insurgents. In 2005, new rebel groups emerged in western Sudan and made probing attacks into eastern Chad despite signing peace agreements in December 2006 and October 2007. In June 2005, President Idriss DEBY held a referendum successfully removing constitutional term limits and won another controversial election in 2006. Sporadic rebel campaigns continued throughout 2006 and 2007. The capital experienced a significant insurrection in early 2008, but has had no significant rebel threats since then, in part due to Chad's 2010 rapprochement with Sudan, which previously used Chadian rebels as proxies. DEBY in 2011 was reelected to his fourth term in an election that international observers described as proceeding without incident. Power remains in the hands of an ethnic minority.

Book CoverWave goodbye to your comfort zone and say hello to Chad, a rugged, arid, wind-blasted place and an experience that you´ll never forget! If Ghana and Gambia are Africa for beginners, Chad is Africa for the hard core. Travel here is tough. Many of the roads are broken due to years of conflict and lack of maintenance. There are few comfortable hotels and there is plenty of bureaucracy and demands for cadeaux (gifts) to negotiate. Added to that, the summer heat is mind-melting, travel costs can be astronomical and the security situation remains unpredictable.

So why bother, you may ask? Well, we could list the sublime oases lost in the northern deserts, tell you about the stampeding herds of wildlife in the national parks or the deep blue lure of a boat trip on Lake Chad. You may partake in the nation´s feel good story as you strike out into the wild or you may find elegant, perfectly preserved shells of aquatic molluscs poking from the powdery sands of the Sahara. Chad offers an opportunity to break with a comfortable Western world and come to a place that promises experiences, good and bad, that you´ll be recalling forever.

The United Nations produces an annual Human Development Report which includes the Human Development Index. The factors taken into account include life expectancy, education and schooling and Gross National Income (GNI) amongst many others..

The Social and Moral Development Index concentrates on moral issues and human rights, violence, public health, equality, tolerance, freedom and effectiveness in climate change mitigation and environmentalism, and on some technological issues. A country scores higher for achieving well in those areas, and for sustaining that achievement in the long term. Those countries towards the top of this index can truly said to be setting good examples and leading humankind onwards into a bright, humane, and free future. See: Which are the Best Countries in the World? The Social and Moral Development Index.

3. Chad's Demographics and Migration

#birth_control #demographics #health #immigration #life_expectancy #longevity #migration #overpopulation #population

Population:

Chad's population is predicted to rise to 18.44 million by 2030. These millions of extra people will all need space to live, food to eat, energy to consume, and will increase the burden on the planet's resources. This country has a fertility rate of 5.79. The fertility rate is, in simple terms, the average amount of children that each woman has. The higher the figure, the quicker the population is growing, although, to calculate the rate you also need to take into account morbidity, i.e., the rate at which people die. If people live healthy and long lives and morbidity is low, then, 2.0 approximates to the replacement rate, which would keep the population stable. If all countries had such a fertility rate, population growth would end. The actual replacement rate in most developed countries is around 2.1.

Chad is amongst the worst places in the world at ensuring human rights and freedom, and it has severe cultural issues when it comes to tolerance and equality. Chad does worse than average for its nominal commitment to Human Rights18, LGBT equality19 (still good for Africa) with homosexual relations being illegal20, speed of uptake of HR treaties21, supporting press freedom22 and in freethought23. And finally, it falls into the worst 20 in terms of supporting personal, civil & economic freedoms24 and in opposing gender inequality25 (amongst the highest in Africa) with the horrendous practice of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) having been enacted upon half of all women, both Muslim and Christian20. Although the Constitution says the state should be secular, some policies favor Islam26

The countries with the best overall approach to public health, in terms of both public policy and individual lifestyle choices, are Monaco, Hong Kong and The Maldives28. These countries are worth emulating. And, although often through no fault of the average citizen, the worst countries are The Marshall Islands, S. Sudan and Palau28.

The data sets used to calculate points for each country are its average life expectancy, its alcohol consumption rate, its fertility rate, its smoking rate, its suicide rate, its food aid and health contributions and WHO compliance, the prevalence of overweight adults, its adolescent birth rate and its immunizations take-up. The regions with the best average results per country are Scandinavia, Asia and The Mediterranean28, whereas the worst are Micronesia, Australasia and Africa28.

Health:

Chad is a pretty unhealthy country. Chad does better than average in its smoking rate29 and in its alcohol consumption rate30. However Chad performs less well in most areas. It does worse than average for its food aid and health contributions and WHO compliance31. It falls into the worst-performing 20 in terms of its fertility rate13, its adolescent birth rate25 and in its immunizations take-up32. And finally, it is the worst in its average life expectancy11. The number of overweight adults has increased by 14% during the last 40 years. Life expectancy in Chad in 1990 was the ninth lowest in the world, at 44.7yrs, and for most of the 2010s it had the second-lowest although overall it still improved by +8.6yrs in the 30 years from 1990, just over the global average improvement of +7.9yrs.

Regarding its responsibility towards the environment, Chad is positioned 78th in the world. This rank is derived from 5 data sets. Chad does better than average in terms of the rate of rational beliefs on the environment in the population35, how quickly it ratified the 1993 Convention on Biological Diversity and in annual meat consumption per person36 (but bad for Africa). Chad still has work to do. Chad does worse than average in its environmental performance37. And finally, it sits amongst the bottom 20 in its forested percent change 1990-201538.

Modernity and Education:
