Key Documents

Context

Burkina Faso aims to become a prosperous country through a structural and inclusive transformation of its national economy. Green growth strategies are important in this envisioned transformation. Thus, the government set the target to increase the amount of carbon sequestered by 2020 to 8 million tones. Among the key enablers to achieve this ambition is the creation of 2000 ecovillages. Other specific Government interventions in this direction include the reduction of carbon emissions, strengthening the country’s resilience to climate change, developing and promoting on-timber forest products and promoting sustainable consumption and production patterns. GGGI supports the government in its efforts to implement this green economy transition under a five years Country Planning Framework CPF (2019-2023) aiming to produce the following strategic outcome:

Strategic Outcome 1: Burkina Faso’s cities are climate-resilient, energy efficient, and low-carbon driven.
Strategic Outcome 2: Burkina Faso’s ecovillages are more inclusive and resilient, leading to enhanced adaptation to climate change and an adequate supply of ecosystem services ensured.
Strategic Outcome 3: Green investment in energy, water & sanitation, and landscape sector leads to decreased GHG emissions and Increased green jobs.

The collaboration between the government of Burkina Faso and GGGI through the CPF will help contributing to address some of the challenges in adopting policies and implementing strategies, together with bankable projects in green cities, sustainable landscape and renewable energy supported by green governance and sustainable financing mechanisms.
