Natural Resource Management Guide

Project Profile

Sustainable natural resource management is closely linked to land use security and planning. Better understanding their interactions and how resource management can be effectively reached through local administrative structures will serve as a stepping stone towards improving natural resources governance at the local level in Burkina Faso.

NCBA CLUSA is drawing on its experiences and successes in West Africa to facilitate effective local planning, securing communal lands, and implementing sustainable landscape development schemes. Our team is currently working under the World Bank’s Forest Investment Program (PIF) with a Technical Advisory Group and local ministries in Burkina Faso to create a practical guide to support local actors and authorities.

The process follows a bottom-up approach, where lessons from the communes will inform the regional and national debates on how to implement local administrative structures that can deliver efficient and effective services to strengthen land use planning and security. The lesson learned from these experiences will be used to feed a national-level technical advisory group with practical information and share best practices with other communes to build their capacities.
