Food insecurity in Burkina Faso is a real problem
According to the country representative of Plan Burkina, Anka Krstic, food insecurity threatens some populations, especially with the arrival of the lean season and the crisis that Burkina Faso is going through. She indicated that during this workshop, ideas will be developed to see what actions should be taken to fight against food insecurity in Burkina.
She pointed out that the work will include mapping all the major actors in the field of food security, creating a framework for exchanges between key actors in the field, sharing major thoughts on the situation, and identifying the major challenges that hamper action.
“We will set up something that is really a multidisciplinary response. Because food security is not just about the unavailability of food. There are a lot of things in society that make some people sleep without having eaten,” said the country representative of Plan Burkina.
A lot of people in Burkina suffer from food insecurity
According to the representative of the Ministry of Agriculture, Emilien Bakoné, Executive Secretary of the National Food Security Council, Plan Burkina is a partner of the Ministry that helps to curb the humanitarian crisis.
“This exchange framework will allow us to reflect on the challenges we face. And what solutions we can find and possibly implement advocacy for short, medium, and long-term actions. To really enable us to curb this humanitarian crisis,” said the Executive Secretary of the National Food Security Council.
He said that the Ministry in charge of agriculture is working with its various partners to provide food assistance to the population and enable them to preserve their livelihoods.
“According to the analyses of the harmonized framework, if nothing is done from July to September, we will have approximately 3.351 million people who will be in a rather complicated food situation,” said Mr. Bakoné. For him, this workshop will allow us to find solutions to quickly take measures to effectively fight against food insecurity.
