Burkina Faso is a low-income Sahelian country with limited natural resources. Its economy is largely based on agriculture, which employs close to 80% of the working population

Despite the progress made in the past two decades, Burkina Faso faces many development challenges, particularly in terms of health and education. Over 40% of the population lives below the national poverty line. Furthermore, insecurity linked to frequent terrorist attacks since 2016 has created an unprecedented humanitarian crisis (World Bank, 2020).
