The world’s most overlooked crisis in the Lake Chad Basin 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 with 17 million people living in these areas.

This complex and protracted humanitarian crisis has resulted in the displacement of more than 2.3 million people, half of them are children.

Taking into account that Plan International is present with country programmes in three out of four affected countries around the Lake Chad, the organization developed a joint programmatic vision resulting in a regional Lake Chad programme.

The Lake Chad Programme is focusing through an integrated approach on Protection (Child Protection in Emergencies and Gender-based Violence), Education in Emergencies and Livelihoods (with a strong focus on Youth Economic Empowerment as well as Livelihoods as Protection enabler).

The 3rd Lake Chad Snapshot gives an overview of the regional Lake Chad Programme of Plan International and its achievements during the months of October and November 2017.
