Abstract
Regulated cotton prices in Burkina Faso have led to higher domestic prices and incentives to production. Although fixed prices, which are indexed to international cotton prices, ensure minimum prices to producers, the sustainability of this system is questionable due to its high cost and the large amount of international aid that it requires.
