Inades-Formation Chad, Inades-Formation Cameroon and their partners have launched the implementation of the project to support the strengthening of the resilience and peaceful coexistence of the Lake Chad Basin communities.

This is a cross-border project to support the resilience of youth groups through the entrepreneurial development of market gardening and fishing in a secure environment, by learning, adopting and innovating production and market access instruments.

Its objective is to support the most vulnerable populations in seven districts/sub-prefectures of Cameroon and Chad to organize and take collective measures for the security of their territories, peaceful coexistence and the improvement of their livelihoods.

Indeed, in the Lake Chad Basin, poverty is deepening and becoming more entrenched in households, despite the efforts made by the relevant Governments and development partners to improve the well-being of the populations, the majority of whom are young people.  In the Far North region of Cameroon, only 24% of the population lives in urban areas. In Chad, only 21.8% of the population lives in cities.

Agriculture, livestock, fishing and trade (internal and cross-border) constitute the main means of livelihood for this population, mainly the populations living along the Logone River in Cameroon and Chad.

In this rural border area, households face food shortages due to climate change. The area is experiencing either droughts or floods, which disrupts agricultural and livestock production, a climate threat compounded by the insecurity that reigns in the region, following terrorist acts.

The outcomes of the project will be:

  • The improvement of the security situation in the 7 districts/sub-prefectures of Cameroon and Chad thanks to the collective actions of the populations.
  • The improvement of the livelihoods of the populations in the seven districts/sub-prefectures of Cameroon and Chad, especially young people.
  • The populations of the three regions of Cameroon and Chad enjoying greater public freedoms, entrepreneurial freedoms and freedom of movement.

The project is implemented in the districts of Kousseri, Logone Birni and Mora in Cameroon, and in the sub-prefectures of Loumia, Logoun Gana, Ndjamena Fara and Mani in Chad.

The target group of the project is young people living in the three districts and the four sub-prefectures.

The project’s partners are:

  • Cantonal development committees (Cameroon)
  • Cantonal development associations (Chad)
  • Groups of young market gardeners
  • Youth Fishing Groups
  • Village savings and credit groups
  • Regional advocacy platforms

1. Qu'est-ce que c'est ?

Le Fonds Africain d’appui au développement rural (FondAfrica) a été porté sur les fonts baptismaux le 23 juillet 1997 à Dar-es-Salaam en Tanzanie, à la suite d’un constat : le développement de l’Afrique ne passera que par son auto-financement.

FondAfrica est un appel à la générosité publique à travers des actions de collecte auprès des personnes physiques et morales.
