Introduction of the organic production of ’Niebe’, Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso

Titre : Introduction of the organic production of ’Niebe’, Burkina Faso

Pays /Région : Burkina Faso
Localisation : Lake Darkoye

Durée : 2009-2012

Présentation
The floodplains around Lake Darkoye in the northwest of Burkina Faso are in the poor Sahel region, where malnutrition and hunger are still prevalent. The farmers use traditional agricultural methods in combination with strong pesticides. As a result the scarce agricultural land and nature have become exhausted or even poisoned. This project trains 375 farmers in ten villages in the organic production of ’Niebe’ (a native type of pulse with a high market value), it invests in storage silos and it teaches farmers sales techniques in order to structurally increase their revenues.

Financement : The Turing Foundation finances this project of the Burkinan organisation AGED through IUCN NL (€ 32,450). The project will run until August 2012.
