Lake Chad development and climate resilience action plan

Source(s):  Lake Chad Basin Commission (LCBC)

This plan outlines the concept of the Lake Chad as a rural hub for regional development in parallel to the restoration of peace and security. It intends to contribute significantly to food security, employment, and the social inclusion of the youth by improving, in a sustainable way, the living conditions of populations settled on the Lake’s banks and islands as well as the resilience of a system characterized by a strong demographic growth, high hydrological variability, and climate uncertainty.

To achieve it, the Action Plan proposes actions in seven priority themes based on observations and knowledge currently available. The four riparian States plus the Central African Republic and Libya, local powers (local governments or customary authorities), Lake Chad Basin Commission (LCBC), and the civil society will be responsible for implementing the proposed actions. The plan includes enhancing the capacity of LCBC in terms of data collection, sharing of information, and carrying out analyses useful to governance of the basin`s shared natural resources.
