Action plan to improve agricultural advice services in the irrigated areas around the Bagré dam in Burkina Faso
This document, based on a consensus between stakeholders, sets out a roadmap for the development of effective agricultural advice services and the improvement of agricultural productivity in the Bagré area.
The Global Water Initiative (GWI)'s action-reserarch work in Burkina Faso has shown that agricultural advisory systems are inefficient and ill-adapted to the needs of smallholders. With support from GWI, stakeholders from the irrigated area therefore met at various workshops to discuss how to address this issue and establish an action plan.
This document thus sets out strategic priorities, devises concrete actions et establishes detailed budgets for each of them.
