The Regional Stabilization Facility (RSF) is a financing facility developed by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), with support from Germany, Sweden, the United Kingdom (UK), the Netherlands and the European Union (EU), to facilitate the implementation of the Regional Strategy for the Stabilization, Recovery & Resilience of the Boko Haram-affected Areas of the Lake Chad Basin (RSS) of the Lake Chad Basin Commission (LCBC). The RSS seeks to restore security and bring relief to communities affected by Boko Haram insurgency in Cameroon, Chad, Niger and Nigeria.

The facility was launched on July 17, 2019 during the 2nd Governors Forum in Niger, by the UNDP Africa Director, Ms. Ahunna Eziakonwa together with representatives of the various partners and Governors. It aims to provide immediate stabilization, within 18 months, to improve community safety and security; restore essential infrastructure and basic services; and provide livelihood opportunities for households in the affected communities. It will also provide extended support to the LCBC to strengthen its capacity. Read more in the RSF Factsheet here or below.
