stabilizing areas affected by Boko Haram   

ADDIS ABABA, (Xinhua) -- The Lake Chad Basin Commission (LCBC) and the African Union (AU) have organized a three-day conference in N’Djamena, Chad, to deliberate on ways of stabilizing the areas affected by Boko Haram.

The conference from Thursday to Saturday, is themed “Supporting the development of a framework for a Regional Stabilization Strategy for areas affected by Boko Haram,” according to an AU statement on Friday.

The Framework for a Regional Stabilization Strategy is the first step towards the development of a comprehensive Regional Stabilization Strategy which will drive and rationalize various initiatives aimed at stabilizing the areas affected by Boko Haram.

The AU Commissioner for Peace and Security, Smail Chergui, and Chad Minister of Water and Sanitation, Sidick Abdelkeria Haggar, have jointly presided over the official opening ceremony of the Conference, together with Engineer Sanusi Imran Abdullahi, LCBC Executive Secretary.

Conference participants include representatives of victims and civil society organizations from areas affected by Boko Haram, governors and traditional leaders, officials from the LCBC Member States, Benin and the AU, representatives of the United Nations and their agencies on the ground, and other international development partners.

The LCBC is an intergovernmental organization established on May 22, 1964 by the four countries that border Lake Chad: Cameroon, Niger, Nigeria and Chad. The Republic of Central Africa joined the organization in 1996 and Libya was admitted in 2008.
