IDA at Work
An estimated 21% of Burkina Faso's population is undernourished. IDA's investments in agricultural productivity have reduced food insecurity and have allowed farmers to use their harvests as collateral to obtain credit.
IDA-supported project is providing 434,000 additional people access to piped water and 403,000 additional people access to improved sanitation services.
IDA financing has rehabilitated more than 1,100 kilometers of rural roads, connecting agricultural production zones to markets and increased access to secondary education, increasing from 20% in 2005 to 34.9% in 2012.
