|Diagnostic Trade Integration Study (DTIS)||2005|
Working together with local stakeholders and development partners, the EIF has supported Chad in incorporating trade-related strategies into their national development strategies. The purpose of mainstreaming trade into the development strategy is to strengthen Chad’s participation in regional and global markets. Trade has also been integrated into the sector strategies for agriculture, livestock, food security, transport and tourism. The overall objective of a targeted value chain development approach is to reduce poverty through income and employment creation, particularly in rural areas.
