Argentina’s Buenos Aires Province has experienced intense rainfalls and flooding that have adversely impacted the Lujan River Basin. These are caused by a combination of factors including climate factors leading to increased rainfall frequency and intensity, the physical characteristics of the river basin, and other factors linked to land-use, urbanization and road and water infrastructure.
The Lujan River Comprehensive Plan will address these problems. Structural adaptation measures such as increasing the conveyance capacity of the river, the construction of retention basins and the substitution of inflatable dams for lock gates will be combined with non-structural measures such as an early warning system, improved land-use management and institution strengthening. GCF’s financing will support the climate adaptation-related measures, while CAF and the Buenos Aires Province provide co-financing for the other non-climate measures.

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/.
