Africa Hydromet Program – Strengthening Climate Resilience in Sub-Saharan Africa : Burkina Faso Country Project

Burkina Faso

Titre : Africa Hydromet Program – Strengthening Climate Resilience in Sub-Saharan Africa : Burkina Faso Country Project

Pays : Burkina Faso

Durée : 01 Mar 2018 — 20 Jan 2025

Descriptif
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.
