As in other regions affected by the humanitarian crisis in Burkina Faso, the security situation in the Boucle du Mouhoun has deteriorated enormously since October 2021. Attacks on civilians by unidentified armed men have increased the number of internally displaced persons in the town of Dédougou. These people are being accommodated in rented houses, tents or with host families, putting great pressure on the host population’s food reserves, water and sanitation infrastructure and household items. This is severely reducing the already fragile livelihoods of these people, who depend mainly on agriculture and pastoralism. What’s more, in the long term this situation is likely to undermine social cohesion and the values of solidarity and mutual aid.

Development Objective

Assisting internally displaced people and affected host households with food rations in Dédougou and building the capacity of internaly displaced people in agro-ecology.

Expected outcomes
  • 200 internally displaced as well as vulnerable host households benefited from emergency food assistance to cover their energy needs.
  • Targeted children aged 6-23 months have further improved their nutritional status through regular consumption of infant flour.
  • The capacities of community leaders (landowners, authorities) and internaly displaced people have been strengthened.

200 households


The total budget is set at € 500 000 for the period 2023 to 2027, so € 100 000 per year.


The project is funded up to 100% by the Ministry of Foreign an European Affairs, Defence, Development Cooperation and Foreign Trade.
