Burkina Faso

Country of reference for agroecology in West Africa

Our partners are active in a platform around organic farming on a national level. We try to strengthen their voice in it.

Burkina Faso is a Sahel country with a population of 17 million people, 45% of whom live below the poverty threshold (less than $1.25 income per day). In 2013 the country ranked 181 in the HDI (out of 187 countries). The country has no direct access to the sea.

In Burkina Faso, our partners are active in the national platform on organic agriculture (CNA-Bio). On the ground, they guide and train farmer groups around a multitude of agro-ecological initiatives. At the policy level, the forum defends the autonomy of farmers regarding, among other things, seed legislation.

Seeds

...and the selection of seeds adapted to local conditions, gives the farmers back their autonomy.

Processing

Experience in the conservation and processing of agricultural products is shared, so that local production is locally traded and consumed.
