Visit of Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC, to Burkina

Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC in charge of Development, travelled to Ouagadougou as part of a high-level joint visit with five leaders from amongst the multilateral institutions and the organisations most active in the field of security and development in the Sahel: Ban Ki-moon, Secretary General of the United Nations, Jim Yong Kim, President of the World Bank, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, Chairwoman of the African Union Commission (AUC), and Donald Kaberuka, President of the African Development Bank Group (AfDB).
Andris Piebalgs thus carried on with his tour, after two first stops in Mali and Niger.
In Ouagadougou, he announced that the EC would allocated a bilateral aid of up to 623 million euro to Burkina Faso for the period 2014-20 (subject to final approval by the Council and the European Parliament). Burkina Faso remains one of the ten least developed countries in the world. European Union cooperation should therefore focus on food security and sustainable agriculture, strengthening the rule of law, and health.
During his visit, Andris Piebalgs also used this opportunity to discuss the new Global Alliance for the Resilience Initiative (AGIR), a strategy for increasing the resilience of population groups in the Sahel which includes Burkina Faso. A roadmap was drawn up with the aim of creating seasonal social safety nets to strengthen the resilience of the most vulnerable people in the fragile region of the Sahel.
