The president of the special delegation of the commune, Adama Bidiga, indicated that all local actors have participated in the development of the PAAEDC

According to the president of the special delegation of Bobo Dioulasso, Adama Bidiga, during the initiation and planning phase of the PAAEDC, the municipality has clearly marked the mobilization of local actors, all the active forces, and the entire municipal administration. This, he said, is in order to make it a participatory and inclusive tool but also a strategic and operational document defining the methods, plans, and actions for a resilient development with low carbon emissions and ensuring access to safe, affordable, and sustainable energy.

The final report of the Sustainable Energy and Climate Access Action Plan, he recalled, was adopted in an extraordinary session of the City Council on December 20th, 2021, and validated in July 2022 by the European Union’s Scientific and Technical Research Laboratory. PAAEDC has been financed by the European Union and will be implemented by the German Cooperation in Burkina Faso (GIZ) for a period of two years.
