Project description

The contracting authority for the “Support Project for Food Security in East Burkina Faso (PSAE)” is the Ministry of Agriculture and Hydro-agricultural Development which has delegated to its Eastern Regional Directorate. This project aims at improving food security for the eastern populations of Burkina Faso by developing their resilience abilities against climate change and economic risks. The PSAE covers all the municipalities of the Eastern regions through four components: i) Support infrastructures for food security; ii) Reinforcing productivity of agricultural and breeding value chains; iii) Sustainable Planning/Management of lands and land tenure security; iv) Project coordination and support to contracting authority; and v) Training and professional employment of the youth.
