Lake Chad is an important sweet water lake in Chad which is a poor and landlocked country of North Africa. Lake Chad is a very large and shallow endorheic lake in Africa, the size of which has varied over the centuries. UNEP (United Nations Environment Program) had warned that almost 95% of the water of Lake Chad has been shrunk from 1963 to 1998, although there is a slight improvement in the recent years.
