Internal displacement in Chad is closely linked to the Boko Haram insurgency, and is mainly concentrated around the western Lac region although population movements, most notably crossborder movements, are also reported in other areas of the country in relation to the Central African Republic and Sudan crises. Due to limited monitoring during the year, the new displacement figures are considered to be an underestimate. The IDP Stock figure is based on a new round of DTM assessment conducted by IOM in the last quarter of 2017. The new displacement estimate is based on variations from several reports published by OCHA and UNHCR, relaying decaying data from IOM
