Catalogue of good practices for climate risks adaptation in Burkina Faso

Complete Title: 
Catalogue of good practices for climate risks adaptation in Burkina Faso
IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

The practices listed in this catalogue are selected on the basis of their potential capacity to mitigate the foreseeable negative effects of climate change, particularly recurrent droughts, floods, strong winds/sand storms and high temperatures. Most of these practices have been improved thanks to the concerted action research efforts of governmental agencies, international organizations and civil society.They remain however, perfectible considering the increasing severity and frequent occurrence of the negative effects of climate variability and change. Hence, they must be implemented as much as possible in order to optimize their positive impacts on the well-being of populations and ecosystems health. We hope that this document will lead to a use of good practices for climate change adaptation at the national level and in the sub-region.
