    This book is a tribute to the strength and intelligence of the people of the Lake Chad Basin who, over centuries, have developed a wealth of local technologies enabling them to survive the harsh and uncertain conditions of the region. Most Lake Chad Basin people today engage in some mixture of agriculture, fisheries and pastoral activities. People in highly uncertain and marginal habitats clearly have a heightened awareness of the importance of biological diversity in their lives. A diversity of potential food sources, over a range of times and places, with different types and levels of demand on the environment minimizes the risk of a potentially deadly shortfall in food resources. Biodiversity, to the people living in this region, is not the mere subject of an academic debate with political overtones, it is the substance of survival. pastoral activities.
