Sustainable Water Management and Food Security Project

Public Sector Window Proposal for the Global Agriculture and Food Security Program (GAFSP)

160217 - Setiawan - FLAG18 February 2016 – Edinburgh, UK – A new resource has been added to the PM World Library related to industries serving basic human needs. The new resource titled “Sustainable Water Management and Food Security Project” looks at an agricultural production and food security project in Burkina Faso.

Burkina Faso suffers from difficult agro-ecological conditions as a result of its worsening semi-arid climate and fast growing population. About 35% of children suffer from chronic malnutrition, including 15% from acute malnutrition in the four regions (North, Sahel, Centre North and East). The Sustainable Water Management and Food Security Project will contribute to the country’s goal of increasing agricultural production, and ensure its stability from year to year. Project implementation is planned over a four-year period (2014-2017). The project has a total cost of US$ 41.2 million, of which US$ 37.1 million submitted for GASFP funding. The overall project implementation risk is assessed as moderate with economic rate of return is estimated at 29.1%.
