Participatory Natural Resource Management and Rural Development Project in the North, Centre-North and East Regions
The goal of this project is to improve the living conditions and incomes of almost 200,000 rural households that are among the poorest in Burkina Faso, enabling them to increase their autonomy and expand their role in building economic and social sustainability.
The project focuses on:
- Strengthening resilience to climate change at the household, farm and village levels through sustainable land development
- Intensifying small-scale farmers' production capacity through the dissemination of best practices and the promotion of financing and innovation
- Ensuring that poor rural women and men act as full partners in development activities in order to achieve long-term economic independence.
The target population consists of rural households affected by poverty and food insecurity in the country's Eastern, North Central and North regions. Half of all households in the North Central and North regions and two-thirds in the Eastern region are affected by poverty. A smaller but significant part of the population is affected by chronic food insecurity.
