As stated by the GCF, countries covered by the ambitious Great Green Wall initiative to reverse land degradation in Africa are among the world’s poorest and most climate vulnerable. Climate shocks are causing a loss of assets, crops and livestock; disruptions to value chains; and soaring food prices. Projections indicate persistent agricultural strain - as rainfall levels are set to continue declining while temperatures increase.
This cross-cutting programme will enhance access to credit and technical assistance for local farmers, farmers’ organisations, cooperatives and micro and small sized enterprises. This will help them implement climate-resilient and low-emission agriculture and agroforestry. This programme covers 11 countries in the Great Green Wall, in addition to Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana. A major aim of the initiative is to build greater coherence and complementarity of climate action in Africa.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF GREEN CLIMATE FUND
The Independent Redress Mechanism (IRM) addresses complaints by people who believe they are negatively affected or may be affected by projects or programmes funded by the Green Climate Fund (GCF). The complainant can raise issues related to any of GCF’s policies and procedures, including those relating to social and environmental issues, indigenous peoples, gender, and information disclosure, among others. If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may seek to address the issues raised by facilitating problem solving or conducting a compliance process. You can learn more about the Independent Redress Mechanism and how to file a complaint at https://irm.greenclimate.fund/.
