Lake Chad snapshot (Issue 6: April– June 2018)

The Lake Chad Basin Crisis remains one of the largest humanitarian emergencies in the world and continues to affect the North-East of Nigeria, the Far North Region of Cameroon, the Lac Region of Chad and the Diffa Region in Niger. Plan International is responding with an integrated regional Lake Chad Programme to the crisis with a total portfolio of 27,4 million Euros, focusing on the thematic areas of Child Protection, Gender-based Violence, Education and Livelihoods. During the reporting time, Plan International expanded its programme into Yobe state to implement GBV and Sexual and Reproductive Health interventions and now covers all three most affected states in North-East Nigeria. In Cameroon, Niger and Nigeria, Plan International is one of the driving actors to promote the ratification and implementation of the Safe School Declaration. During the last 3 months several actions were undertaken to protect schools from attack (see Coordination section). In Diffa, Niger, humanitarian actors are increasing their work around Youth Economic Empowerment. However, there is a lack of coordination and Plan International is advocating towards local authorities and OCHA to establish a Livelihoods Working Group in Diffa region.
