BIOPALT UNESCO Chad
The Lake Chad basin is an important source of fresh water that supports more than 45 million people. Located at the crossroads of Cameroon, Chad, the Central African Republic, Niger and Nigeria, it has great potential in terms of biodiversity and natural and cultural heritage. It is inscribed on the World Heritage Tentative List of Cameroon, Chad, Niger and Nigeria. It also hosts two World Heritage sites (Lakes of Ounianga and Manovo-Gounda), a Biosphere Reserve (Waza) and Ramsar sites or wetlands of international importance (including the Cameroonian, Chadian, Nigerian and Nigerian parts of Lake Chad and the rivers of the Central African Republic).
