The objective of the Agricultural Diversification and Market Development Project of Burkina Faso is to increase the competitiveness of selected agricultural subsectors that target national and regional markets, thereby contributing to shared agricultural growth in Burkina Faso. The Additional Financing will help finance the costs associated with a scale-up of activities to enhance the poverty impact and developmental effectiveness. Positive impacts relate to the following points: food security; job offer; valuation of local production; limitation losses of agricultural products; proper storage of goods, crops, seeds and inputs; increase producers' incomes; use of management techniques environmentally sustainable; capacity building of producers; improvement of living conditions of the population; optimal management of water resources and access to drinking water; etc. Factors of potential major environmental and social risks of the project are: (i) the influence of water quality on the development of fisheries (pollution from agricultural activities); (ii) the pressure of population in the area, which could induce an alteration of wetlands, shoreline degradation and wildlife sanctuaries, high demand for wood products, the progressive deterioration of the environment in the absence of implementation of a program of conservation and environmental pollution by waste disposal; (iii) unauthorized occupation of land belonging to indigenous population. On the biophysical environment, the major potential negative impacts include: loss of vegetation and reduction of biodiversity in deforestation and land clearing during construction phase of the infrastructure; land degradation due to salinization, soil acidification; the decline in fertility because of cultural practices; soil erosion; loss or reduction of grazing land; degradation of water quality (pollution of rivers and lakes); etc.
