This project proposes to conduct a study on the scope of remittances in Chad. IOM's consultations with key partners such as the World Bank, the African Development Bank, the Central African Development Bank, the Ministry of Plan, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, have all revealed that no comparable study has been previously initiated. As the first study of its kind, it will address significant information gaps currently preventing evidence-based decision-making in this context. The study will also include an analysis of the current challenges and potential opportunities to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment in the economic context. The study will include tailored recommendations for stakeholders; the establishment of an inter-disciplinary committee; the creation of a road map to guide future efforts, and a guide for ambassadors on remittances. The proposed intervention will enhance the capacity of the Government of Chad to harness remittances for development, ultimately aiding in finding sustainable solutions to improve the livelihood of its citizens.
