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) 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/.
