Protracted Relief and Recovery Operation, Burkina Faso 200054

This Operation has been modified as per Budget Revision 4 (see below).

Persistent high food prices in local markets and significant household income declines from falling cotton prices have exacerbated the precarious food security situation in Burkina Faso. As a result, undernutrition among children aged 6-59 months and among pregnant and lactating women is a concern in most of the country. The Sahel, East and Boucle du Mouhoun regions are among the most affected areas, with wasting levels over 15 percent for the children under 5, and levels above 10 percent in the North, Centre-North, Plateau Central, Centre-West and South-West regions.
