Protection Messages - Lake Chad Basin Conference

The Lake Chad Basin (LCB) region continues to face a humanitarian and protection crisis, severely impacting civilian populations, particularly women and children, in an increasingly unstable context. The following messages reflect priority protection issues and needed actions in the Lake Chad Basin, based on analysis and key messages from the Protection Clusters1 in Cameroon, Chad, Niger, and Nigeria and from UNHCR as lead agency. Additional contributions were made by the Global Protection Cluster’s Advocacy Task Team. These messages are being shared with relevant stakeholders ahead of the Lake Chad Basin Conference, which is set for 23-24 January 2023
