Building Resilience in Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso

Titre : Building Resilience in Burkina Faso

Région /Pays : Burkina Faso

Zone d’intervention :

Dates : 2014-2017

Descriptif _ To increase the resilience of vulnerable communities in Burkina Faso through a multi-sectoral and integrated program using community-based women’s savings groups as a sustainable platform for improving livelihoods and nutrition knowledge, linkages to services, and access to finance.
Specifically, the project will address the problems of inadequate agricultural, nutrition and financial knowledge and practices among the target population, and the inability of agricultural extension, health and nutrition and financial service providers to effectively reach this vulnerable population. In some cases, such as with agricultural extension workers, the technical capacity exists but not the ability to reach remote village women smallholders ; our proposed activities will explore the innovative use of technology to bridge this gap.

Activités  : ) Build linkages to services and financing for climate-smart agriculture ii) Strengthen knowledge and skills on better food-utilization and nutrition practices iii) Improve resilience to food security shocks through increased savings and assets, and iv) Contribute to learning on individual and community-level resiliency and disaster risk reduction through examining the impact of agriculture, nutrition and financial services delivered to savings groups.
