This paper presents background issues and a statistical update on Chad. The paper highlights that by mid-1994, it became evident that major slippages had taken place under the economic adjustment program adopted by the authorities earlier in the year. As a result, the authorities examined the nature of the problems of program implementation and monitoring. The examination concluded that ownership of the program had been lacking, the objectives of the program had not been properly explained both within and outside government, and preparation and supervision of the required policy measures needed clearer and firmer guidance.
