Titre : Beog-Puuto family farming Burkina Faso

Pays : Burkina Faso

Date : 15 December 2018 - 31 December 2023

Agence : Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency
Implementing organisation : SOS Sahel International France

The project "Beog-Puuto" aims at restoring eroded abandoned farmland, increasing productivity in family farms and strengthened resilience of 50,000 vulnerable households in dry areas in northern and eastern Burkina Faso. The impact is expected to be increased productivity in family farms through a positiv systems change, stronger resilience of vulnerable households to climate change, higher income, improved situation for women and strengthened incentives to young men to refuse militant extremism.

The non-governmental organization SOS Sahel International France has applied for 198 million SEK for the period 15 December 2018 - 31 December 2023 to carry out the project in cooperation with SOS Sahel International Burkina Faso, the small NGO Terre Verte and the programme the Great Green Wall (La Grande Muraille Verte) of the Ministry of the Environment in Burkina Faso. Cooperation is also planned with the Ministry of Agriculture, 30 rural municipalities and a number of local organizations. The validity of the agreement between Sida and SOSSIF will expire on 30 September 2024.

The project aims to (i) recover eroded farmland and increase productivity for groups of about 30-60 family farmers who have decided to merge their small farm plots into larger units of 100-150 hectares, and to (ii) sustainably improve the soil status and increase productivity in family farms through a broad application of traditional water & soil conservation techniques.

The soil & water conservation technique Zaï will be implemented at a large scale.

Collective production units will be created thrugh small water das for rice production and vegetable and fruit gardens. Value chains will be supported, particularly for female farmers and entrepreneurs. Women has a key role in agriculture in Burkina Faso and gender equality will therefore be prioritised in the project.
