The finalization process was overseen by Lamine Ouedraogo (GGGI – Senior Officer Green Growth Programing), Mr. Do Etienne Traoré (UNFCCC Focal Point) and Mr. Péléga Athanase Kinda (NDC – Partnership Country Facilitator).

In total, ten (10) sectoral plans, related to the above ministries, have been finalized with a strong gender mainstreaming. Each sectoral plan is structured in three axis:

  • Axis 1: Strengthening the adaptive capacities and resilience;
  • Axis 2: Reduction of GHG emissions in the sector;
