This Chad agriculture subsector review investigates the state of knowledge, key gaps and recent developments in relation to constraints to the sector and proposes policy actions and levers for future structural transformation of the sector. First, the report examines the opportunities for further development of the most important cash and staple crop value chains in Chad. Then it uses the latest open data and analytics available for Chad to better inform investment priorities for agriculture in the country. It showcases ways in which a combination of spatial and ground-truthing data can help inform investment prioritization by type and location. This analysis is coupled with modeling future climate change and how this may impact agricultural production potential and rural livelihoods. Finally, the analysis looks at the current institutional environment for policy-making and public expenditure in the agriculture sector and inventories the key gaps on which work is needed to complete the policy and strategic framework envisioned by the 2018 Agro-Sylvo-Pastoral and Halieutic Orientation Law (LOASPH).
