Strengthening Climate Information and Early Warning Sytems in Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso

Titre : Strengthening Climate Information and Early Warning Sytems in Burkina Faso

Climate-Related Hazards Addressed : Drought/Water Scarcity

Pays : Burkina Faso

Project
The project, "Strengthening Climate Information and EWS in Western and Central Africa : Burkina Faso", responds to priorities and actions identified in the NAPA of Burkina Faso which articulate the need for securing, transferring and installing critical technologies, as well as developing the necessary systems for climate change-related information to permeate into decision-making processes. The technologies required to achieve these aims will increase the capacity of the national early warning network to forewarn and rapidly respond to extreme climate events.

•Outcome 1 : Enhanced capacity of national hydro-meteorological (NHMS) and environmental institutions to monitor extreme weather and climate change.
•Outcome 2 : Efficient and effective use of hydro-meteorological and environmental information for making early warnings and long-term development plans.

Primary Beneficiaries : Rural farmers and urban residents who will be given advanced warning in the case of extreme weather events and droughts which places an increasing number of livelihoods in danger.

Implementing Agencies & Partnering Organizations : Government of Burkina Faso ; African Monitoring of the Environment for Sustainable Development (AMESD) ; UNDP ; GEF

Funding Source :Least Developed Countries Fund (LDCF)
Financing Amount : 4,000,000 (as of April 16, 2012)
