Caption: Lake Chad, satellite image. Lake Chad is the fourth largest lake in Africa. It is located in the Sahel region, just south of the Sahara. In the 35 years since 1970, it dried up considerably, shrinking to around a twentieth of its size. This is due to a combination of factors, including increased reliance on it for irrigation schemes and the droughts which have been afflicting the region.
