LAKE CHAD CRISIS OVERVIEW
The Lake Chad Basin (LCB) is facing one of the largest humanitarian crises in the world today; approximately 17 million people are affected by the conflict in the region1 . Since 2009, an area spanning four countries in Central and West Africa has been affected by the violence perpetrated by the Nigerian extremist group Boko Haram.
In the ensuing years, the insurgency group has turned to violent attacks against local populations, causing an unprecedented protection crisis.
This report presents the case for improving the condition of the wetlands of the Sahel as part of a strategy to address human migration and its links to the degradation of land and water resources, poverty, conflict and climate change. We offer an analysis of the key trends and issues and their relevance to existing policy goals.

Switzerland - IOM, the UN Migration Agency, reports that 54,715 migrants and refugees entered Europe by sea in 2017 through 17 May, with nearly 85 per cent arriving in Italy and the remainder divided between Greece, Cyprus and Spain. This compares with 189,950 arrivals across the region through 17 May 2016
IOM Rome reported that, through 17 May this year, 45,754 migrants or refugees have landed in Italy, and over 8,500 – or nearly one fifth of this year’s total – have arrived over the past two weeks. (See chart below.)
(N'djamena, 19 May 2017): The United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, Mr. Stephen O'Brien, has approved the allocation of US $ 3.5 million from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) for rapid response in the Lake Chad region. These funds will help provide vital humanitarian assistance to meet the needs of 40,000 people, largely former internally displaced people returning to their villages of origin, in island areas and villages south of Bol canton.
As famine takes hold in South Sudan and threatens to spread to northeastern Nigeria, Somalia, and Yemen, world leaders must immediately step up to fully fund the United Nations’ appeal for $6.3 billion. Of this amount, $4.9 billion is urgently needed by July for critical assistance, including health, food, nutrition, and water. If lives are to be saved, humanitarian agencies must be able to rapidly scale up and access people in need.
Faits saillants à fin avril 2017 : D’observation générale, on remarque un recul à partir de la semaine 13. Prière de noter que les données d’incidence de RDC comptent pour 97,7% de l’incidence totale cumulée, ainsi, cette réduction est à observer principalement sur le Bassin Congo.
Over 10 million people across the Lake Chad Basin are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance.1 Since 2014, CERF has provided nearly $147 million for life-saving humanitarian assistance to people affected by the conflict and deepening food crisis. With the support of CERF’s rapid response and underfunded emergency funds, humanitarian partners have been providing life-saving assistance and protection for the most vulnerable people – internally displaced, returnees, refugees and host population - affected by Boko Haram and military operations.
