Projet d’irrigation localisée et de résilience agricole au Burkina Faso (PIRA-BF)

Burkina Faso

Titre : Projet d’irrigation localisée et de résilience agricole au Burkina Faso (PIRA-BF)

Pays : Burkina Faso

Partenaire (s) : MINEFID (vormals : MEF) / MINEFID - Ministère de l’Économie, des Finances et du Développement (vormals : Ministère de l’économie et des finances)

Période d’exécution : Project start : 15.12.2019 // End : 14.12.2022

The overall objective is to contribute to achieving food security and reducing the incidence of poverty, focusing on increasing women’s socio-economic empowerment in the intervention areas.

Groupe cible/ Beneficiaires  : The target group of PIRA-BF is women farmers and processors in the vegetable and fruit sectors. Its implementation will address the current security context by taking into account internally displaced populations, particularly women who are most affected.

PIRA-BF will directly reach 2,000 women farmers and processors, including 500 from internally displaced populations. To create conditions of sustainability in the current context of insecurity, more than 200 local artisans and animators will be strengthened to provide advisory support, maintenance and repair services and the supply of kits and spare parts as needed for the benefit of women farmers.

The project will operate in the Boucle du Mouhoun, Hauts-Bassins, Nord and Sanguié province of the Centre Ouest regions and reach a total of 2.200 direct beneficiaries.

PIRA-BF will promote equitable access to productive resources and support services for women through actions grouped around the two following components :
* (i) Component 1 : Development of irrigated agriculture on a sustainable basis through improved access for women to efficient and resilient irrigation systems. The actions planned under this component aim to support the modernization of women-led family farms for sustainable performance taking into account the dimensions related to climate change and variability ;
* (ii) Component 2 : Development of professional skills of women farmers and improved access to lucrative markets. This second component aims to develop the necessary support services for women and young women farmers in irrigated crops and post-harvest management (financial services, inputs, technical advice etc.).

Financement : OEZA
