Chad’s predominant natural resource is petrol, with sales of oil accounting for around 80% of the government’s revenue. Other resources include petroleum, kaolin, gold, bauxite, tin and tungsten. Deposits of uranium are also currently being explored.

Recent activities

Coming up PWYP Chad is organising a workshop to raise awareness among legislators of the EU transparency and accounting directive and of Dodd-Frank 1504.

17-20 September 2012 - PWYP Chad attended the ten year anniversary of PWYP, where PWYP’s new strategy, Vision 20/20, was officially adopted.

5-8 March 2012 - PWYP Chad hosts the Africa Steering Committee’s second meeting

18 January 2022 - PWYP member GRAMPTC (the Chad/Cameroon Alternative Research and Petrol Project Monitoring Group), acting on behalf of 22,500 farmers from 25 villages in the Doba region of Chad, filed a complaint with the World Bank for human and environmental rights abuses caused by the pipeline project.

The project has deprived farmers of their livelihood, as the pipeline has used up vast swathes of land and its pollution adversely affected agriculture and cattle. The freedom of movement for the community members has been hindered, with the protection of the pipeline creating a de facto curfew from 18:00 to 6 a.m. Villagers have also reported instances of torture, arbitrary arrests and destruction of their property.

After the complaint was lodged, the Office of the Compliance Advisory Ombudsman announced it will carry out an official mission to the area at the end of February.
