À propos des organisateurs

Le projet de redressement et de développement de la région du lac Tchad (PROLAC, 170 millions de dollars) est le premier projet régional financé par la Banque mondiale destiné à aider à relever les défis de la région du lac Tchad. Avec un financement supplémentaire au Projet multisectoriel de relèvement après une crise dans le nord-est du Nigeria (MCRP AF, 176 millions de dollars), les deux projets jetteront les bases de futurs investissements régionaux et coordonnés qui amélioreront l'accès aux marchés régionaux, favoriseront le développement des chaînes de valeur et relanceront le commerce transfrontalier et régional.
