UNESCO and the World Bank, in coordination with the Lake Chad Basin Commission, BGR and other key partners in the region seek to make a complementary contribution to the collection of new and the synthesis of existing sources of groundwater data, by planning and coordinating the development of an up-to-date, comprehensive groundwater model of the basin.

The Lake Chad Basin Groundwater Modeling Workshop will begin a collaborative effort with the World Bank, UNESCO and other development partners to co-develop an up-to-date groundwater model. This model, alongside a surface water model, will serve as a tool for LCBC and member states to better manage the Lake Chad Basin’s water resources.
