Tools for Good Water Management in Lake Chad

Lake Chad is the main source of food security and livelihoods in the region, however, a number of risks, including climate change, variability, and aquifer contamination, are threatening the Lake’s socio-ecological system and public health. With a low human development index in the region, lack of access to basic water and sanitation services, and one of the highest population growth rates in the world, investments in development projects are sorely needed. To design sustainable and climate resilient projects, adequate knowledge is needed about the water resources dynamics and how these will be affected by proposed projects.
