The Borkou-Ennedi-Tibesti (BET) was until 2008 one of the then 18 (and now 22) regions of Chad, its capital being Faya-Largeau. It comprised the former Borkou-Ennedi-Tibesti Prefecture. Most of the region was part of the Sahara desert.
The region of Borkou-Ennedi-Tibesti was formerly divided into 4 departments:
|Borkou||Faya-Largeau||Borkou Yala, Faya-Largeau, Kouba Olanga, Yebibou, Yarda|
|Ennedi Est||Bahaï||Bahaï, Bao Billiat, Kaoura, Mourdi|
|Ennedi Ouest||Fada||Fada, Gouro, Kalait, Ounianga|
|Tibesti||Bardaï||Aouzou, Bardaï, Wour, Zouar, Zoumri|
The region had a population of 70,603 inhabitants in 1993, of whom 59,479 are sedentary and 11,124 nomad.
There are a variety of fauna and flora in this region. Previously the African Wild Dog, Lycaon pictus, had populations in this region, but they are now regarded as extirpated from the area, due to activities of humans as well as desertification, a phenomenon associated with the expanding human population.
