Building Resilience and Reducing Malnutrition - Burkina Faso

This Operation has been modified as per Budget Revision 4 (see below).

The 2012 Sahel food crisis compounded food insecurity and malnutrition in Burkina Faso, one of the poorest countries in the world. The most recent emergency food security assessment found 1.7 million people at-risk of food insecurity, and a nationwide prevalence of global acute malnutrition of more than 10 percent.
