In severe natural environment, about 80 percent of its labor force is engaged in the primary industries of agriculture and livestock, and the Government of Burkina Faso aims to accelerate the economic growth through agriculture development and the enhancement of human resource. JICA's support to Burkina Faso is primarily focused on 1) promoting the sustainable economic growth through agriculture development, 2) improving the quality of education, and 3) supporting the integration of regional economy.
