Burkina Faso

Situated in West Africa, Burkina Faso is a relatively flat country with a primarily dry tropical climate and two distinct seasons – a short rainy and a long dry season. Among the changing climate condition is an increased variation in rainfallIn addition, the East and Southwest are hit by very high temperatures and droughts. As most of the population relies on self-sufficient farming, Burkina Faso is highly vulnerable to climate change. Impacts are scarcity of water resources and decreases in agricultural yields and productivity. The drier conditions also increase the risk of forest or bushfires.
