CTCN seeking experts: Project in Burkina Faso

Publication date:

The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) is seeking experts for the implementation of the following technical assistance:

Use of digital technologies to develop a methodology to increase climate resilience in the city of Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso through nature-based solutions

Burkina Faso's main urban centers have a large amount of land for the creation of green spaces provided for in the cadastral plans. However, green space sites are illegally occupied (27% in 2012), diverted from their initial use or colonized by socio-economic infrastructures such as schools, places of worship and commercial kiosks. In the face of these threats, protection, beautification and enhancement is a major challenge for sustainable management of landscaping in Burkina Faso in order to improve the quality of life of the population in urban areas as reflected in the National Landscaping Strategy.
