Moving toward a common agenda for agricultural production in large dam-irrigated areas: Summary of Burkina Faso workshop

Document language: 


This report summarises the outcomes of a national workshop on agricultural advice services organised by GWI West Africa and its partners in Ouagadougou on 4 June 2015.

The workshop sought to foster the interest of government authorities and technical and financial partners in the participatory planning process undertaken in the Bagré dam area to improve agricultural advice services, and engage them in the implementation process.

This report sums up the objectives and progress of the workshops, analyses their outcomes and lays out the action points agreed upon by participants.

Please note that this document is only available in French.

Similar workshops were held in Dakar and Bamako, on 1 and 11 June 2015 respectively. A synthesis report summarising outcomes of the three national workshops is available here.
