Strategic Action Programme for the Lake Chad Basin: Agreed by the LCBC Member States of Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Niger, and Nigeria
Final SAP: 11 June 2008 This Strategic Action Programme (SAP) for the Lake Chad Basin has been prepared as part of the UNDP-World Bank-GEF project entitled Reversal of Land and Water Degradation Trends in the Lake Chad Basin Ecosystem. The SAP is the final output of a regional consultation process, which has involved the Member States of the Lake Chad Basin Convention, the Lake Chad Basin Commission and International Partners, together with contributions from academics and members of various NGOs active in the region. The SAP primarily addresses the seven priority regional environmental concerns that were identified in the Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA), namely the variability of the hydrological regime and fresh water availability, water pollution, decreased viability of biological resources, the loss of biodiversity, the loss and modification of ecosystems, sedimentation in rivers and water bodies, and invasive species.
