WACDEP demonstration project in Burkina

The Burkina WACDEP team had field trips in February (13th 2015) and March (13, 25 and 29) to first inform and discuss with interested parties on the progress of the demonstration project and find consensual solutions for the conduct of the project. Due to new budget limitation developments the intervention was reframed based on available financial resources.

Exchanges were also made with the Municipality of Loumbila which welcome the initiative of the mission as timely. The demonstration project will be carried out on half a hectare.
In March the consultants were introduced to the council and beneficiaries in order to initiate the planning process of the site. Field work began also with the digging of trenches for irrigation pipes and cables for the solar system. People have been mobilized to clear the site.
This visit was used to assess the level of progress on the ground.

The CWP is also preparing a documentary on the demonstration project and the mission made shootings in that purpose.
