She said the platform, funded by the African Development Bank (AFDB) and supported by its partners was built around the easy accessibility of relevant and trustworthy information about the Lake Chad region, adding that professionals have meticulously checked the information acquired to guarantee that people receive correct and up-to-date information.

The LCBC was instructed to create an online Knowledge Management Platform (KMP) to fulfill three requirements in the Regional Strategy for the Stabilization, Recovery, and Resilience of the Boko Haram Affected Areas, which was published in 2018.

In order to enhance regional strategy and speed its realization through meaningful online contact with strategic initiatives, the LCBC Community Connect turns to the online network of professionals, decision-makers, members of civil society, women, and youth.

The Director, Regional Stabilization Facility, Ms Blerta Cela, said “We must engage young men and women, practitioners, academia, media, and influencers to own this platform and encourage them to use their energy, creativity, and enthusiasm to devise sustainable policies and solutions that will benefit the Lake Chad region.”

She expressed optimism that the LCBC Community would fulfill its mandate and continue to be the region’s forerunner in knowledge management.

According to her, a diverse variety of stakeholders collaborate directly with the RS-SRR Secretariat to improve development cooperation.

She said the knowledge platform was expected to benefit the groups by allowing them to sign up for accredited online courses (open e-learning), access resources, and connect with a community of professionals to assist them with their activities in the region.
