This timely partnership takes place in a setting where Burkina Faso’s nature is bending under the pressure of human activity. The unbridled race towards raw materials, and the imperative of economic development, is not always compatible with sustainable production and consumption. It’s an age-old tale : humanity’s needs are unlimited, but resources are rare. Our current mode of development is reaching its limits, and it is necessary to find a new balance between man and his environment. Find out how this new partnership is tackling familiar old problems here.
