The initial objectives of the efforts portrayed in this report were to (a) integrate all available groundwater data available in the Lake Chad Basin in an updated database; (b) develop an updated and integrative conceptual groundwater model of the Lake Chad Basin, including all old and new information and reflecting the best current understanding, and (c) develop the equivalent numerical groundwater model of the Lake Chad Basin, with emphasis on two focus areas: the Komadougu-Yobe and Chari-Logone river basins, given their relevance for groundwater recharge and use. Even though the overall conceptual model and the numerical model need to be further improved, the basin-wide perspective presented in this work, integrating multiple sources of available data, provides a foundation to better understand and quantify basin-wide hydrogeological dynamics. This enables future efforts to assess potential impacts of future investments and climate futures.
