    Burkina Faso

    Labour migration, primarily to Côte d’Ivoire, masked the high rate of natural population growth in Burkina Faso for many years. However, since a political crisis began in this neighbouring country in late 1999, many Burkinabe have returned home. This posed major challenges, especially for rural areas. In the south of the country, shrewd population policy and appropriate rural development programmes have been e? ective in meeting these challenges.

    Burkina Faso

    The authors present evidence that in
    Burkina Faso, certain high-performing local institutions
    contribute to equitable economic development. They link
    reduced levels of poverty, and inequality to a high degree
    of internal village organization. The structure of these

    Linking growth and poverty is a crucial element for evaluating the effectiveness of government policies under the Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP) process. Burkina Faso has benefited from more than 3 percent growth in per-capita incomes since the devaluation in 1994, while the steady increase in incomes, albeit from a very low level, should over time have lifted some Burkinabe above the poverty line, and led to a reduction in poverty rates. Growth during 1998-2003 was driven by a large expansion of the primary sector, following the 1997-98 drought.

    Resources (MRA), and the Ministry of the Environment and
    Sustainable Development (MEDD), is one of the pillars of the
    Burkina Faso economy. Although its contribution to GDP has
    decreased in recent times from 35 percent in 1999 to 30
    percent in 2011 due to the development of the other sectors

    Burkina Faso's Poverty Reduction
    Strategies (PRS) of the 2000s, which were implemented as
    annually rolled-over Priority Action Programs, focused on
    four pillars: a) accelerating broad based growth; b)

    the poor; and d) promoting good governance. Increased public
    expenditure and targeted social service provision also led
