Burkina Faso — President of the Transition, Captain Ibrahim Traoré, took a significant step towards boosting agricultural productivity in Burkina Faso by distributing agricultural equipment and inputs to farmers. The allocation, worth over 78 billion CFA francs, aims to promote food self-sufficiency and enhance the agro-pastoral and fisheries sectors, according to a statement from the Presidency.

This initiative is part of the government’s broader effort to support local producers and drive agricultural development. President Traoré emphasized the substantial increase in support for agro-sylvo-pastoral producers for the year 2024, noting that this year’s allocation far exceeds previous distributions.

“This year, we are making available twice the amount of equipment compared to 2023 and over five times the average quantity distributed in the past five years. Similarly, the provision of chemical fertilizers will see an allocation of approximately 68,900 tons, more than double the amount distributed in 2023 and over five times the average of the past five years,” stated President Traoré.

In addition to providing equipment and fertilizers, President Traoré encouraged young people to engage in agriculture, highlighting the presence of regional focal points who will assist aspiring producers. This initiative underscores the government’s commitment to supporting local farmers and promoting agricultural development across the country.

The significant investment in agricultural equipment and resources reflects a renewed focus on bolstering Burkina Faso’s agricultural sector and achieving food self-sufficiency. The distribution of equipment and fertilizers is expected to significantly enhance agricultural productivity and improve the livelihoods of farmers throughout the nation.
