Komadugu Yobe Basin, upstream of Lake Chad, Nigeria : multi-stakeholder participation to create new institutions and legal frameworks to manage water resources
IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

Inappropriate water management practices in the Komadugu Yobe Basin, upstream of Lake Chad in northern Nigeria, changed the seasonal river flow and caused widespread environmental degradation. Coupled with this was fragmented regulation and conflicting responsibilities among institutions, a lack of coordination for hydro-agricultural developments, inequitable access to water resources and growing tensions and risk of conflicts among water users. As a response to this situation, WANI and partners initiated a process of coordination and participation of all stakeholders in dialogue to reverse the trends in natural resources degradation in the basin through integrated management. This case study describes the situation, activities taken, and results achieved during this process.
