Feature – Environmental Strain in Chad

MAGS OUT NO SALES: (PLEASE HOLD FOR STORY LYDIA POLGREEN WILL BE FILING ON REFUGEES CAUSING ENVIRONMENTAL STRAIN IN CHAD) Sudanese refugees gather at a water point in Bahai camp in northeastern Chad, October 17, 2006. Chad, with its very limited supply of natural resources, is being strained due to the deluge of Sudanese refugees into camps along Chad’s border with Darfur since 2004. Firewood and water, both once sufficient for the scant Chadian local population, are now almost depleted in the areas in and around the camps. (Credit: Lynsey Addario for The New York Times)
