Country : Burkina Faso
Region : Ouagadougou (Borrow of Saaba)
Beneficiaries : Population of the borrow and of two other cities; Gourcy et Kombissiri
Costs : CHF 124'240 (in2010)
Duration : 3 years (2008-2010)
Main problematic :
Plastics, used batteries and other toxic wastes reach even the most secluded areas in Burkina Faso. People are often unaware of the health and environemental problems causes by these "new" wastes.
In addition, local authorities, when aware of these serious problems, lack the financial and technical means to manage wastes.
CEAS has decided to support three local communities. First hand in hand with a local association in the borrow of Saaba (Ouagadougou). Then, in the cities of Gourcy and Kombissiri.
