The Poverty, Reforestation, Energy and Climate Change Project (PROEZA1 ) will improve the resilience of 17,100 households that are highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change (CC) in 64 municipal districts located in eight departamentos of Eastern Paraguay. These municipal districts have been selected because their environmental and social vulnerability is rated as extremely high2 . Per IPCC climatic scenarios and the baseline information on the impacts of CC on people’s livelihoods and ecosystems (see Section C.2), it is estimated that climatic variations would have significant and differentiated effects and intensities in various sectors. In particular, family farming would experience significant reductions in productivity in crops such as cotton, bean, cassava, sesame and sugarcane. Reduced productivity leads to a change of production type and can have important livelihoods impacts as well as social, environmental, economic and cultural effects in the rural sector that can ultimately impact resilience to CC.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF GREEN CLIMATE FUND
The Independent Redress Mechanism (IRM) is the independent complaint mechanism for a person or people who have been or believe they are likely to be adversely affected by a project or programme funded by the Green Climate Fund. 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. You can contact the IRM at email@example.com.
