It is expected to play an important role for keeping the peace and stability of the West Africa as well as promoting integration of regional economy. On the other hand, Burkina Faso is still one of the poorest countries in the world with low GNI per capita of 580 US dollars in 2011 (2013 World Bank) compared with the average of countries in sub-Sahara Africa (1,270US dollars). 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.
