The '''Lake Chad Basin aquifer''' is shared between eight countries, including Chad, Niger, Nigeria and Cameroon. The Lake Chad Basin Commission (LCBC), based on the “Convention Relating to the Development of the Chad Basin” signed in 1964, was created in order to regulate the management of transboundary natural resources. Cameroon, Niger, Nigeria, Chad and the Central African Republic are members of the LCBC, and Sudan was granted membership in 2000 but has not yet ratified the convention. The commission is responsible for regulating and controlling water and natural resources uses in the basin, including groundwater management. To date, few groundwater programs have been implemented, but the LCBC has recognised groundwater importance and made efforts to fully include groundwater in its activities (GWP 2013).
