Policy Framework for Investment in Agriculture in Burkina Faso

image of Policy Framework for Investment in Agriculture in Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso is the first country to apply the OECD Policy Framework for Investment in Agriculture to assess its policies to attract and benefit from investment in the sector. This whole-of-government assessment involved 17 Ministries and institutions, as well as the private sector, and has identified short- to medium-term measures to improve and strengthen the country's capacity for policy design.

Preface by His Excellency Laurent Sedego

After 50 years of agricultural policy, Burkina Faso’s agriculture sector continues to face a number of challenges amid an ever faster evolving national and international environment. Rural development is still hampered by: unequal access to land, agricultural inputs and equipment; poor infrastructure and financing; inadequate agricultural extension; and natural resource degradation. These constraints limit private investment in the sector and hence its contribution to development.
