Nexus Event // Conclusions of the Lake Chad Multidisciplinary Expert Meeting on Livelihoods and Water

This article presents the outcomes and conclusions of the Lake Chad Multidisciplinary Expert Meeting, which took place in February 2019 in The Hague, the Netherlands. The multidisciplinary meeting focused on water and livelihood development in the Lake Chad region, as well as long-term stabilisation aimed at addressing root causes of conflict.

On 18 and 19 February 2019, over 50 experts from the Lake Chad region and the broader international community, from academia, government, civil society and international organisations, met in The Hague in an informal setting. Recent analytical work funded by the French, German and Dutch governments and the World Bank informed their discussions. So did the Lake Chad Basin Commission (LCBC)’s and African Union Commission (AUC)’s Regional Strategy for the Stabilization, Recovery and Resilience of the Boko Haram-affected Areas of the Lake Chad Basin Region (‘the Regional Strategy’).

The multidisciplinary meeting focused on water and livelihood development in the Lake Chad region, as well as long-term stabilisation aimed at addressing root causes of conflict. The meeting’s objective was to sharpen expert assessments, identify spaces to rebuild communities’ resilience, and articulate a course of action to restore resilience in general conditions of deep uncertainty and political fragility in the countries concerned: Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroun.
