'ESIA system mapping' in Burkina Faso

November 2017 - Burkina_kleinIn Burkina Faso, the NCEA supports the environmental ministry with an analysis of the ESIA system. This analysis is done through the NCEA’s ‘ESIA system mapping’ methodology and is done in a workshop with a variety of actors that play a role in the system. This facilitates discussions on which aspects of the system are strong and which aspects need to be strengthened. It helps to set priorities for improvement of the system.

The workshop in Ouagadougou was opened by the Minister of Environment, Mr Batio Nestor Bassiere. He emphasised the ambitions of his government to ‘go green’, as well as the importance of Dutch support in doing so.
