Description and results


This project aims to strengthen vulnerable populations’ resilience in Burkina Faso through the development of greener, more productive and more inclusive income-generating activities. The project focuses on supporting women and communities exposed to socio-economic and climatic shocks and aims to improve the nutritional status of vulnerable populations, especially women and children. The project is working to implement a series of complementary and integrated activities responding and adapting towards the different contexts and specific needs of the populations and communities affected by the multifaceted crisis raging in Burkina Faso. Project activities include: (1) rehabilitating and constructing productive assets and water infrastructure through strong social mobilization; (2) training and support in setting up income-generating activities; and (3) implementing activities to fight against malnutrition in favour of women and children. Based on the triple nexus approach, this initiative enables vulnerable populations to better cope with recurrent shocks, adapt to them and recover from them more rapidly, while offering economic and food prospects to targeted populations, particularly women.

Expected results

The expected results for this project include: (1) increased participation of women in greener, more productive economic activities; and (2) improved nutritional status of vulnerable populations, particularly women and children.
