IMSA Burkina Faso

Innovation and Mobilization
for Food Security


A Sahelian and predominantly agricultural country, Burkina Faso is faced with the permanent challenge of ensuring sustainable food security for its population in a context of desertification and soil degradation. 46.7% of the Burkinabé population live below the minimum acceptable threshold and find themselves in a situation of food and nutritional insecurity. The country is committed to combating this phenomenon by implementing strategies aimed at reducing poverty and food insecurity of the Burkinabé populations.
Mission inclusion has been working in the food security sector in Burkina Faso for more than a decade, providing technical and financial support to the Union des groupements pour la marketing agricole de la Boucle du Mouhoun (UGCPA-BM) in the north west region, the Association Formation, Développement, Ruralité (AFDR) in the north, and Action pour la Promotion des Initiatives Locales (APIL) in the centre north and plateau.
Started in April 2015, the Innovation and Mobilization for Food Security (IMSA) project is scaling up its initiatives to reach more producers, and will create greater synergy between the three partner organizations, strengthening the coordination of actions to promote food security throughout northern Burkina Faso. The project aligns closely with the solidarity and equitable partnership approach that characterizes all of Mission inclusion’s interventions.
