Project for the improved management and sustainble use of NWFPs in Burkina Faso, 2010-2013

Project overview: This project aims to enhance the institutional framework for managing and coordinating the use of NWFP and to improve internal markets for NWFPs. In addition, the project is focusing on building national capacities related to food security and income generation from NWFPs.

Primary beneficiaries: The main beneficiaries are producers/gatherers, processors, traders and their professional organizations, households, technical officers in the seven areas of intervention and the National Agency. Since women are heavily involved in collection operations, preservation, processing and marketing, it is anticipated that they will be some of the main beneficiaries of the project. 

Project activities to date: Forthcoming.


Key outcomes: Forthcoming.
