Lake Chad Regional Stabilization Facility

About the Programme

The Regional Stabilization Facility for the Lake Chad is intended to provide a new approach, calibrated to respond to the challenges of governance, insecurity, rule of law, human security and livelihood in the Lake Chad Basin region. It responds to the need for a step-change in the scale and nature of intervention, in speed of response, increased territorial coverage, and improved regional cooperation in the region.

The borderlands between Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger, have become a hotspot of terrorist attacks and community violence over the past years. Building on best practices from the Lake Chad Basin, UNDP is supporting the Liptako Gourma Authority to develop a stabilization strategy and to set up a regional stabilization mechanism which will support national authorities to implement short term stability interventions in strategic locations.

With support from Germany, Sweden, United Kingdom (UK) and the European Union (EU), to facilitate the implementation of the Regional Stabilization Strategy (RSS) of the Lake Chad Basin Commission (LCBC).
