Republic of Chad

Location and Geography

Chad is the largest country of former French Equatorial Africa. It is a landlocked country with one of the world’s lowest population densities. It is situated in the heart of Africa and has borders with Cameroon in the South-west, Niger and Nigeria in the West, the Central African Republic in the South, Libya in the North and Sudan in the East. Chad’s topography is generally flat except for a range of hills along the Eastern border and relatively high, barren mountains in the far North-west. Most of the country’s drainage system flows into Lake Chad which lacks an outlet. The climate is hot and arid in the Northern desert regions, and wet and tropical in the South.
