Five-year support for mine action

A lack of funding is a recurring difficulty that Chad has faced in meeting its obligations under the Mine Ban Treaty and the Convention on Cluster Munitions.[3]

In 2017, Chad was within the top 10 recipients of international mine action assistance, when it received a total of $25.7 million.[4] However, funding has fallen significantly over the last five years, totaling $3.6 million in the period from 2018–2022.
