Burkina Faso is the first country to apply the OECD Policy Framework for Investment in Agriculture (PFIA) to assess its policies to attract and benefit from investment in the sector. This whole-of-government assessment involved 17 Ministries and institutions, as well as the private sector, and has identified short- to medium-term measures to improve and strengthen the countries capacity for policy design.
This assessment was undertaken by the Ministry of Agriculture of Burkina Faso, with the support of the NEPAD-OECD Africa Investment Initiative and the Sahel and West Africa Club. It is based on the draft PFIA. Read more about the Burkina Faso and the PFIA.
