International conference 
Professional and economic integration of youth and women in the context of the lake Chad basin crisis: experience sharing and perspectives

The crisis in the lake Chad basin is the result of a complex combination of multiple factors, including a precarious security situation involving non-state armed groups, extreme levels of poverty, persistent underdevelopment, and climatic disruption. This crisis, which has persisted for more than a decade, has affected every aspect of daily life (destruction of livelihoods, loss of financial and productive assets, limited access to education) of all social categories of the populations of the area; in particular women.


The conference "Professional and economic integration of youth and women in the context of the Lake Chad Basin crisis: experience sharing and perspectives" provides a framework for exchange and restitution of the study on: "The place of gender in the socio-economic development of lake Chad", carried out within the framework of the RESILAC project.
