Headquarters of the West African program
The West African program is based here. After 30 years of political stability and the same presidency, this landlocked state is in a phase of upheaval. Refugee waves in the north of the country are increasing the already high pressure on scarce natural resources. In addition Terrorist attacks are increasing. Along the numerous rivers, small lakes and Burkina Faso water reservoir, there is considerable potential for cultivation, even during the dry season. The use of efficient irrigation methods could better exploit this.
