Strengthening the climate resilience of Burkina Faso by enhancing and optimizing the supply and demand side of climate information systems.
One of the least developed countries in Africa, Burkina Faso is highly vulnerable to weather related hazards, especially floods and droughts. The country is already experiencing the effects of a changing climate and a growing trend of economic and livelihood losses due to weather-related disasters.
This project will address this problem by focusing primarily on strengthening the significantly underdeveloped climate information sector of the country. This is expected to provide positive results for the livelihoods of rural communities, along with increased food security and a reduction in their vulnerability to weather-related hazards.
The project has an estimated lifespan of 5 years.

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/.
