Agriculture and Revenue-generating Activities

The term « Agriculture and RGA » encompasses all revenue-generating activities that relate to agriculture and farming. Burkina Faso is a predominately agricultural country. The population pressure leads to competition for land that is more keenly felt in mining areas where land is already scarce. SEMAFO Foundation guides communities in increasing their agricultural production with an emphasis on modern animal husbandry methods. This is directly aligned with SDG #1 No poverty, #2 Zero hunger et #5 Gender equality.
