The Building Resilience through Innovation Communication and Knowledge Services (BRICKS) project is a six-year regional knowledge and monitoring hub. It supports the US$1.1 billion Sahel and West Africa Program (SAWAP) of TerrAfrica, a regional program of 12 World Bank financed country operations plus related partner-supported activities that together contribute to the region’s and clients’ Great Green Wall Initiative (GGWI) priorities.
BRICKS supports SAWAP by providing operational services to 12 country projects (Benin, Burkina Faso, Chad, Ethiopia, Ghana, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Soudan, Togo) to help identify regional and global innovations, promote them through better communication, and put that knowledge into use.
