Evaluation of the Burkina Faso PRRO 10541.0

Burkina Faso is amongst the poorest countries in the world, ranking 173rd out of 179 in the UNDP’s 2008 Human Development Index. Roughly half of the country’s population does not have sufficient access to the food needed to meet minimum energy requirements. From the early 1990s, there was worrying evidence of increasing prevalence and incidence of undernutrition in Burkina Faso.
