UN officials have met in recent days with members of the humanitarian community in Chad to discuss issues of common concern, particularly with regard to the estimated 250,000 refugees and 180,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs) living in the east of the country. A gathering in N’Djamena brought the Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary-General, Rima Salah, along with colleagues from the UN Mission in Chad and the Central African Republic (MINURCAT), together with humanitarian partners, including NGOs and UN relief agencies. A similar meeting was held in Abeche, in eastern Chad, earlier this week. (UN News Service)
