In Burkina Faso, Environmental Assessment is legally required since 1997. The most recent decree on SEA and ESIA has been published in 2015. A mapping on the EA-system was conducted in 2017.
The national authority for Environmental Assessment is the Agence Nationale pour l'Evaluation Environnementale (ANEVE).
The NCEA does not have a country programme in Burkina Faso, but it does conduct individual activities in the country.
