  • Introduction

    Sustainable development in Chad remains, at least, a myth whose sustainable development objectives advocated by the United Nations and taken into account by the State, erected into public policies, are far from being realized. The major challenges are to apply the bottom-up development model to enable citizens to participate fully in governance. Investments in priority sectors such as: industry, natural resources, health, environment and education are essential for accelerating development. For this purpose, the constructivist approach applied to this study will consist of analyzing the efforts made in the hope of achieving the objectives set by the State by 2030. Access to water as an economic good, social and environmental issues, and sanitation is, according to the United Nations in 2010; part of international human rights law; which right must contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. The link between health and quality of the environment is a fundamental indicator for the transformation of Chad. The traditional sectors (agriculture, livestock and fisheries) abandoned by the state since the oil exploitation in 2003, has jeopardized the economic development of the country, the considerable advance of the desert as well as the rate of mortality and poverty mean that Chad is on the sidelines of the world. Terrorist threats have pushed the state to focus on security and have completely forgotten the key sectors that constitute the udder of development namely: agriculture, livestock and fisheries. This study makes it possible to propose possible solutions for achieving sustainable development by 2030.
