UNDP WACA #RebuildingTogether Podcast

For decades, Lake Chad Basin countries (Cameroon, Chad, Niger and Nigeria) have grappled with various forms of insecurity, including banditry, abductions, highway robbery and cattle rustling, with the most significant security challenge being the Boko Haram crisis.

#RebuildingTogether represents our efforts to make affected territories whole again and restore hope for a future of possibilities. Through the Regional Stabilization Facility, we support peacebuilding and development in the region to rebuild social contracts and reduce violence.
