LACC Project : Lake Chad & Adaptation to Climate Change

The Lake Chad Basin supports a growing population of about 50 million people: farmers, pastoralists and fishermen who rely heavily on natural resources. Impacted by rising temperatures and increased variability of rainfalls patterns, and having very low adaptative capacities, the area is among the most vulnerable in the world. Climate change (CC) is adding to the existing challenges such as scarcity of natural resources, environmental degradation, population growth, high unemployment rate especially for the youth and tensions and insecurity. To meet these major challenges, the project aims to contribute to increasing resilience to CC, food security and social cohesion especially for young people and women in the Lake Chad Basin by working on 4 pillars: (1) Integrated and sustainable management of resources (water, soil, forests) (2) Resilient livelihoods (3) Resilient and equitable local governance (4) Dissemination of good practices to sustainable development at regional scale. The project will target directly

45 000 people in the following regions: Diffa, Niger (Gueskerou, Kableawa and Bosso communes), Far North Region, Cameroon, (Bourha, Hina and Mokolo Communes) Lake Province, Chad ( Mamdi, Kaya and Fouli departments - Liwa, Kiscra, Dala, Nguelea 1, Nguelea2, Ngarangoun et Bol communes).
