BRES: Changing farming practices to prepare for heavy rain and high temperatures

  • Countries of Operation: Burkina Faso
The project will build the economic, ecological and organisational resilience of 620,000 rural people in Burkina Faso and strengthen their ability to cope with the effects of increased rainfall variability and higher temperatures. This will be achieved by diversifying agricultural production and increasing incomes (through improved, sustainable access to drought-tolerant seeds, soil fertility improvement and enterprise development), together with strengthened government extension services to reduce crop losses and early-warning weather systems. The project will scale proven resilience-building approaches, embed climate adaptation approaches in local, regional and national plans, and generate and disseminate best practice guidance on climate adaptation approaches.
