Chad was already hosting hundreds of thousands of Sudanese refugees before the latest fighting.
Fighting in Sudan between the army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces largely continues despite a ceasefire.
So far, the crisis has forced more than 20,000 people to flee to neighboring Chad.
But the impact of the crisis goes beyond the immediate displacement of the Sudanese population.
Analysts warn that the unrest could pose a serious threat to the stability of Chad and the region as a whole.
So, how will Chad deal with the conflict in its eastern neighbour?
