GREATER LAKE CHAD STRATEGY 2021–2031
As part of Search for Common Ground’s (Search) organization – wide strategy, the Greater Lake Chad (GLC) region was identified as one of twelve transnational conflict geographies in which Search will focus its efforts over the coming ten years. This summary lays out Search’s comprehensive strategy for the GLC region, composed of the countries bordering the Lake Chad Basin, including Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon.
