RECOSOC – Emergency programme for the stabilisation of the G5 Sahel cross-border regions


Titre : RECOSOC – Emergency programme for the stabilisation of the G5 Sahel cross-border regions

Pays : Niger et Tchad
Localisation : Niger : Regions of Agadez and Diffa ; Chad : Lake Provinces and Kanem

Dates : 06.12.2019 – 05.12.2023

Both Chad and Niger are countries in which armed conflicts due to scarce natural resources are common. The regions chosen in this project in both countries are border areas strongly affected by climate change, floods, high food insecurity, malnutrition, gender-based violence, as well as forced migration and internal displacements due to armed conflicts linked to the presence of the Boko Haram group in the Lake Chad basin. The increase in average annual temperatures and the gradual decrease in summer rainfall are adversely affecting harvests. In addition, there is a lack of public investment, that would be necessary for development, and weak local governance.

Overall : Improving food and nutritional security and social cohesion in the most fragile regions of Niger and Chad

Specific : SO 1 : Strengthen the livelihoods of agricultural and pastoralist populations by building resilience to food and nutrition insecurity in a sustainable and structural way. SO 2 : Improve social cohesion and community conflict management related to natural resources in Niger and Chad.
