In the fields of southern Chad, cotton farmers face an uncertain future as they grapple with the twin challenges of climate change and political neglect. For generations, cotton has been the backbone of communities like Kagtaou, sustaining livelihoods and fueling economic growth. However, the once-thriving industry now teeters on the brink of collapse.

Declador Rimleldeoudje, a young farmer, navigates through his cotton fields with a mixture of hope and apprehension. Despite their hard work, farmers like him find themselves at the mercy of unpredictable weather patterns. Erratic rainfall, droughts, and floods have become all too common, leading to significant drops in production.

But it’s not just the climate that poses a threat. Long-standing conflicts between farmers and herders further compound the challenges. Disputes over land ownership often escalate into violence, claiming lives and disrupting livelihoods.

As Chad prepares for presidential elections, the plight of cotton farmers takes center stage. Many in the south look to opposition leader Succes Masra for hope and change. With promises of support and justice, Masra’s message resonates deeply with those who feel abandoned by the government.

Jean Benaudji, head of the cotton growers’ association in Kagtaou, sees Masra as the beacon of hope they’ve been waiting for. “He’s the only one who can provide support for the cotton growers, who’ve been abandoned and forgotten by the rest of the country,” he remarks.

As voters weigh their options, the future of Chad’s cotton industry hangs in the balance. Will political promises translate into tangible support for struggling farmers? Only time will tell.
