Current Nature-based Action in Adaptation Plan

Soil restoration and defence against degradation caused by climate change.

Improvement of intercommunity grassland areas, in order to reduce migratory movements due to climate change.

The Lake Chad basin sustainable development programme (PRODEBALT with funding from ADB).

The Lake Chad preservation project: contribution to the Lake development strategy (GEF-ADF).

The Programme for integrated management of cross-border basins in African – example: Lake Chad (EU).

Planned Nature-based Action in Adaptation Plan

Agriculture – develop intensive and diverse cultivation, using improved inputs, (organic fertilisers including composts, adapted plant varieties), agroforestry, land and water conservation, (implementation of soil restoration works) and preparation and distribution of new cropping calendars.

Develop an agro-ecological approach (soil fertility management practices, addition of manure and compost, agroforestry development, water and soil conservation)
