Main goals

This project aims to improve food security and the resilience of women and youth in the country by securing their access to land and by strengthening land governance and management practices

Burkina Faso is dealing with many crises: food insecurity, climate vulnerability and massive population displacement. Land plays a critical factor in all these crises. The fast-growing population, degradation of land as well as widespread migration of the population across Burkina Faso are putting rampant pressures on land. Improved land governance, including more sustainable and climate-resilient land management practices, and improved access to land for vulnerable groups, can provide crucial support to addressing these crises in Burkina Faso.

Specific objectives

SO1. Raising awareness on land rights among relevant stakeholders
SO2. Participatory registration of land titles with special reference to women and youth
SO3. Optimizing land management practices of secured land of women and youth to address challenges related to land degradation and/or food insecurity
SO4. Monitoring and learning on the experiences of the other components and formulating recommendations for more sustainable land governance
