Just over 200 kilometres north of the Chadian capital, N'Djamena, Lake Chad is one of the oldest lakes in Africa. It supports nearly 30 million people living along its shores in Chad, Cameroon, Nigeria and Niger but also in other neighbouring countries.

However, since the early 1970s, the lake has lost 90 percent of its original surface area to unsustainable water management and climate change. The basin itself has shrunk from 25,000 square kilometres to 2,000 square kilometres.

  • On 20 November, a suspected Boko Haram suicide bombing attack has killed five people and wounded 27 in Kolofata, a village in the Far North Region of Cameroon. This is the ninth bombing attack reported in the region since September.

Boko Haram violence has caused the arrival of 90 000 refugees from Nigeria in Cameroon as well as the internal displacement of 219 000 people in the Far North Region.

Key messages

Education is lifesaving. Education is crucial for both the protection and healthy development of girls and boys affected by crises. It can rebuild their lives; restore their sense of normality and safety, and provide them with important life skills. It helps children to be self-sufficient, to be heard, and to have more influence on issues that affect them. It is also one of the best tools to invest in their long-term future, and in the peace, stability and economic growth of their countries.
