The Lake Chad Basin Commission

The Lake Chad Basin Commission (LCBC) was established on 22 May 1964 by the four countries bordering Lake Chad: Cameroon, Niger, Nigeria and Chad. The Central African Republic acceded to the organization in 1996 and Libya was admitted in 2008. The LCBC is headquartered in N'Djamena, the capital of Chad.

The Commission's mandate is to manage Lake Chad and other shared water resources in its basin in a sustainable and equitable manner, to preserve the ecosystems of the Conventional Lake Chad Basin and to promote regional integration, peace and security throughout the basin.
