The link between security, humanitarian and development issues around the Lake Chad Basin has led to an intractable extremist insurgency since 2009 that has killed tens of thousands of people and displaced an estimated 2.5 million people. To date, more than 10 million people in the Lake Chad Basin, particularly the northern and far north regions of Cameroon, HadjerLamis and Lake provinces in Chad, the Diffa region in Niger and the states of Borno, Yobe and Adamawa, are affected and in urgent need of assistance. In response to this threat, United Nations Security Council Resolution 2349 (2017) was adopted, followed by a series of high-level conferences, including the Oslo Advisory Group on Prevention and Stabilization conference in the Lake Chad region, held in Berlin, calling for strengthening regional collaborative capacity to address the crisis and the African Union and Lake Chad Basin Commission conference on developing a framework for a regional stabilization.
In the context above and with the aim of addressing the root causes of the conflict and ensuring the long-term stabilization of the region, a regional strategy for stabilization, recovery and resilience (RSS) of the Lake Chad Basin areas affected by Boko Haram, was adopted by the Council of Ministers of the Lake Chad Basin Commission in August 2018 and approved by the African Union Peace and Security Council (CSC-AU) in December 2018. A Regionl Stabilization Facility (RSF) has been put together to support the implementation of the RSS. The Facility pursues three main objectives under pillar 1 of the RSS:
RSF has four national windows covering Niger, Nigeria, Chad an Cameroon.
As for RSF-Chad, the project targets 6 localities in each of the two provinces covered. The project document was adopted on 14 October 2019 by the Project Board after lengthy bottom up consultations that brought on board line ministries, governors of target provinces, administrative, traditional religious and social leaders, youth groups, women unions and associations etc, under the leadership of the Ministry of Economy, development planning and international cooperation (MEPDCI). Consultations led to the development of Joint Action Plans (JAPs) for each target locality, documenting their priorities in the three obove mention RSF outputs.
For the initial phase, two localities were targeted : Guité (Haldjet Lamis province) and Ngallamia (Lake Province). Project implementation effectively started in April 2020 and so far many milestones have been covered towards achieving the planned results. However, while the project has been holding the leading role in terms of delivries, communicating on results and building a common understanding among stakeholders has been a challenge.
In order to address this challenge as a matter of urgency, UNDP is seeking to support of an experience expert in the area of strategic communication, donors reporting and partnership.
