Chad, Africa (Sarah, Melia, Stephanie)
Transcript of Chad, Africa (Sarah, Melia, Stephanie)
Most of the population, half of which is under the age of 15, lives in several southern provinces where high rainfall makes farming and animal husbandry easier. About 1 percent lives in the arid upper half of the country extending into the Sahara desert. http://www.uv.es/EBRIT/macro/macro_5006_65_78.html Maps of Chad Economic Geography http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion_in_Chad http://www.nationsencyclopedia.com/economies/Africa/Chad.html Urban Geography Main travel in small cars or large semis to carry passengers.

Cotontchad also has ginning operations in several large southern towns. In addition, Chad has a cigarette company and a firm that assembles agricultural equipment. In N'Djamena(capitol), several companies produce paint, metal roofing, fruit drinks, mineral water and cookies. Chad's third largest city, Sahr, hosts a sugar production factory and an idle textile mill.
A South Korean company, AFKO, recently began building a factory to extract gold reserves near the southern town of Pala. Chad is known to hold deposits of bauxite, iron ore, uranium, tin, and tungsten, but further research is necessary to determine whether these resources can be extracted.
Wheat Cattle is a main export.
