Abstract

Poverty has been variously measured in terms of income, consumption, and access to social and physical infrastructures. It is a multi-component phenomenon that cannot be measured by one single variable. This indicates that poverty alleviation or eradication requires a holistic approach. Because the existing strategies at ensuring poverty alleviation have not made impact at the Lake Chad Basin. Therefore, this study identifies the strategies that are adaptable to the area. Data were obtained on Literacy, income, quality housing, mobility, and access to infrastructure, cultural and socio-economic. The paper develops a pragmatic strategy through which the fishing communities can experience true empowerment and improved standard of living
