Location: Nobéré, South Central Region, Burkina Faso
The peri-urban commune of Nobéré comprises 27 villages and an urban center.
The family bocage fields are agroecological ecosystems taking into account the fundamental elements of a sustainable agricultural system: soil, water and plants. They create the conditions for an agro-sylvo-pastoral ecosystem that enables farmers to cope with the effects of climate change and the land pressure of which they are the first victims and which directly endanger the food security of their families.
General objective: Improve the incomes of farming households by promoting sustainable agricultural practices.
Specific objectives :
- Restore the soil and improve yields
- Adopt environmentally friendly farming practices
Project duration: January 2015- December 2020
Beneficiaries: 48 farming families benefit from the development of family bocage fields
The family bocage fields project (FBF) consists in supporting farming families in the adoption of environmentally friendly practices. A bocage family field is not only a preserved place for implementing sustainable agriculture protected from land degradation, but it is also a place where biodiversity is revitalized. The beneficiary farmers are supported in the management of the family bocage field through training enabling them to acquire skills in agro-ecological techniques.
The FBF project is an integral part of the Rural Development component of our Colibri Program, which works across several (Nutrition, Water-Sanitation-Hygiene, Rural Development) to improve overall the living conditions and resilience of the population of Nobéré.
