Project Description
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. Expected project benefits: GCF results areas UN Sustainable Development Goal * #6 Clean water and sanitation

If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may seek to address the issues raised by facilitating a problem-solving dialogue or, if that is not possible, conducting an independent investigation into whether the GCF has complied with its environmental and social policies. The IRM is newly created and is still in the process of developing its procedures and website. More information about the IRM and how you can file a complaint is forthcoming.
