Climate Action for Ecosystem and Biodiversity Preservation
The Lake Chad Basin has a wealth of flora and fauna, particularly with various species of fish and birds. Protected areas of international importance were created to protect these species, but they are often poorly managed. The desert landscapes, shrub-steppes, savannah areas, forest, wetlands, and mountainous areas of the Basin make up the ecosystem. However, climate in the Lake Chad Basin is Sahelian, mostly characterized by a very short rainy season and a long dry season for the rest of the year. LCBC is working with various stakeholders to reverse the effects of climate change and biodiversity degradation.
