General Observations One of the observations that the mission made was that the Chad mine at;tion programme has suffered tram a lack of effective outreach ta the intemational rTine action and development communities. As a consequenoe, Chad has essentially 'dropped off the radar screen' of key dfJnors and supporters. The management probiems within HCND through 2004 have not inspire(;! confkjence in the national programme and donors have, accordingly, directed their support to other mine-affected countries in the region. Another equal/y significant observation is that the mine action coomunity in Chad has a very clear picture of the impact of mines on the country and how to best tackle the problem. The challenge in Chad is not, therefore, one of plioritizaoon or inadequate inforrnaoon, but rather lack of fuooing. With a concerted effort to mobilize signifîcantly more financial and in-kind support, the Chad mine action programme could begin making significant gains in the short to medium terrn. Ths WIll require more active engagement of the UNDP country office, particularty in esta~ishing and chairing a Donor Coordination Mechanism, and of the HCND, the UNDP mine action programme in Chad, aoo BCPR's Mine Action Unit in raising the profile of the national programme at the re{Jional and globallevels. 1 Or«l Schlein vitited Chad 2-7 June 2005; Ta"a Rzehak visited Chad 1-9 June 2005.
