Context

Burkina Faso has adopted a new national development framework for the period 2021-2025, known as the "Second National Economic and Social Development Plan (PNDES-II)", which was drawn up in a participatory manner and adopted by the Council of Ministers at its meeting on 30 July 2021. The PNDES-II aims to make the country "a nation of peace and democracy, resilient, united and supportive, transforming the structure of its economy to achieve strong, inclusive and sustainable growth". It will serve as a federating framework for the implementation of development policies and programmes. Its implementation will be done in a synergy of action with all the actors concerned, namely the State, local authorities, the private sector, civil society, Burkinabè abroad and development partners.
