This development project aims to improve the standard of living of local population. The dam’s goal is to increase the area of irrigated land, enhance agricultural production and contribute in strengthening the overall food supply of the country, especially that Burkina Faso, is located within a territory subject to drought from time to time. Furthermore, this project includes the construction of a hydroelectric facility with an annual production capacity of 16.8 GWH, as well as the reclamation of 1,500 hectares of agricultural land as a first step out of about 23,400 hectares to be reclaimed land in 17 identified locations. The project enjoys a comprehensive overall vision of sustainable development since it involves a plan of environmental and social services management that aims to the improvement of public health and natural resource management and resettlement of residents affected by the project.
