Pays : Burkina Faso

Durée : 01 November 2013 // 30 June 2019

Présentation
It is expected that as climate change unfolds, the variability of the frequency and intensity of climate related shocks will increase, thereby necessitating key economic sectors to adapt. In a developing country such as Burkina Faso, climate change impacts are exacerbated by limited outreach mechanisms to local levels and a country dependence on subsistence agriculture. For Burkina Faso, improving Climate Information (CI) and developing an Early Warning System (EWS) is an effective way to build the general population’s weather /climate risk awareness, so that they prepare accordingly and better manage long-term climate change risks, and associated uncertainties. Currently, a national EWS/CI for multi-risk forecasting (e.g. floods, droughts, strong winds) and the capacities to produce and disseminate weather/climate information does not exist in Burkina. In order to have an effective system, it is necessary to improve the existing network of weather/climate monitoring infrastructure and to help build technical and operational capacitiesto efficiently produce and deliver targeted forecasts for planning and decision-making. This project, with financing from the Least Developed Country Fund (LDCF) will address such needs. One component of the project will be used to improve weather, climate and environmental monitoring. A second component will be used to strengthen/develop national systems to package forecast warnings based on user-needs and to effectively disseminate warnings and other relevant information and data to assist decision-making processes. In conjunction with other ongoing initiatives of relevance outlined in this project document, LDCF resources are expected to enhance the adaptive capacity of vulnerable populations throughout Burkina to respond to extreme weather events as well as to facilitate long-term climate resilient development planning at the national and sectoral levels.
