Pillar 6: Socio-economic Recovery and Environmental Sustainability

of the Regional Strategy for the Stabilization, Recovery & Resilience of the Boko Haram- affected Areas of the Lake Chad Basin Region

What is it about?

Socio-Economic Recovery and Environmental Sustainability is one of the nine pillars of the Regional Strategy. Revitalizing the local economy and boosting trade and producing goods is essential for stabilization, especially considering the loss of livelihoods and food insecurity as a consequence of the Boko Haram crisis in the region. Sustainable resource management and capacity building are critical to promoting economic recovery and ensuring long-term benefits for the local communities. 


The Socio-Economic Recovery and Environmental Sustainability pillar has four strategic objectives:

  1. Supporting Sustainable Livelihoods: To support and promote livelihoods, particularly in the agricultural sector (farming, fishing and livestock) in a way that takes account of climate change and environmental sustainability
  2. Improving Infrastructure for Regional Economic Integration: To mobilize investments to promote infrastructural development to increase economic, trade and cultural exchange
  3. Creating Conducive Business Environment: To ensure a conducive business environment is fostered through policy and legal frameworks that promote investments, trade and economic activity
  4. Ensuring Environmental Sustainability: To enhance the resilience of communities and systems around Lake Chad to adapt to environmental shocks for enhanced sustainability of interventions
