Komadugu Yobe Basin, upstream of Lake Chad, Nigeria : WANI case study

Complete Title: 
Komadugu Yobe Basin, upstream of Lake Chad, Nigeria : WANI case study
IUCN Grey Literature
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. Stakeholder collaboration has resulted in a Catchment Management Plan, a Water Charter, new institutions and the empowerment of stakeholders to participate in planning and management of water resources to provide the necessary capacity to respond to stresses and shocks.
