Map of Chad / Chad Geography / Chad Map
This old place known as Chad was populated over a million years ago, at a period when much of it was just inland. Valuable waters are often hard to find in Chad today, while starvation and wars are everywhere. The French government lasted until Chad achieved sovereignty in 1960, and the Chadian Progressive Party (PPT) leader, Francois Tombalbaye, was named the country's first ever chairman.
Chad on 23 December 2005 announced a state of peace against Sudan following an attempted overthrow of Chad's Prime Minister Idriss Deby. A large part of the nation lies in the warm and arid (and mostly unproductive) Sahara, which covers Chad with sandy and sparse scrubland. The extreme southern and southwestern regions around Lake Chad are improving the environment for supporting an array of wild animals and farming activities.
Shortcomings in the long run are the internal situation, the depressing level of debt, the decline of Lake Chad and the growing extension of the Sahara. So what is the currency of Chad? In Chad, which language is used?

Chad, Africa (NASA - October 1968). This southeastern looking photo shows the northern and southern pools of Chadsee. There are seasonal and year-to-year variations in the area. Chad is the fourth biggest in Africa and the seventeenth biggest sea in the whole wide area of almost 16.000km².
It has an avarage northern water level of only 3 metres, while the southern water level is almost 6 metres, and it is supplied by two large watercourses, the Chari and the Komadugu Gana, and many smaller creeks, but has no runoff. Chad is a fresh water sea, which is very uncommon for a desertshore.
Situated on the sub-Saharan border, Chad contains a large number of sandy beaches or islands in both the north and the southwest basins. About two million years ago, when the weather was much more humid, Chad Sea occupied a large part of the south-central Sahara desert. When the weather became dryer and some geological elevations took place in the north of the lagoon, leading streams into the lagoon to the southwest into the Congo basins, the lagoon shrunk to just over 10% of its initial area.
Chad is continuing to contract because of the arid weather that is affecting this part of Africa. One of the most susceptible to short-term changes due to dryness and overevaporation is the Great Barrier, which is almost entirely separated from the south pool by a crest.
