Defending the vulnerable Nile Delta against coastal flooding damage to improve the resilience of rural communities.
The Nile Delta is among the top three most vulnerable regions in the world, according to the IPCC. The Delta faces the threat of flooding of low-lying coastlines from sea level rise and increased intensity and frequency of storm events. A one meter rise in sea level is expected to submerge 20% of the land area of the delta by the end of the 21st century. Salinization of land and water resources is expected to have significant impacts on agriculture, fishing and availability of freshwater resources.
Providing coastal defence soft structures and integrated coastal management to adapt to coastal flooding from sea level rise and increased frequency of storms. This will reduce the vulnerability of coastal infrastructure, protecting surrounding villages, agricultural land, and the international coastal road. The project will also lead to the development of an integrated coastal zone management plan for the entire North coast of Egypt.

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/.
