Providing sustainable irrigation to improve the climate resilience of subsistence oasis farming and larger-scale date and olive agriculture within the Boudnib Valley.
Ensuring the long-term preservation of underground water supplies is essential to protect both oasis subsistence farming and the larger-scale date and olive farms from climate change risks. This project will create a connecting irrigation system to the Kaddoussa Dam that is currently being built upstream of the Guir wadi, ensuring downstream agricultural sustainability by providing surface water for farming. This will improve the situation of oasis agriculture and alleviate the pressure on the deep groundwater. The project will build the climate-resilience of oasis communities, and set up cross-cutting sustainability measures such as technical assistance, groundwater preservation, and environmental and social impacts management.

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/.
