Location: Nobéré, South Central Region, Burkina Faso
The peri-urban commune of Nobéré comprises 27 villages and an urban center.
The family farmlands are agroecological ecosystems that take 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 on 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 farm families benefit from the development of family farmland
The family farmland project (CFB) consists of supporting farm families in the adoption of environmentally friendly practices. A bocage family farm is not only a protected place for sustainable agriculture and 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 farmland with training to acquire skills in agro-ecological techniques.
The CFB project is an integral part of the Rural Development component of our Colibri Program, which works across sectors (Nutrition, Water-Sanitation-Hygiene, Rural Development) in order to improve overall living conditions and resilience. the population of Nobéré.
