The new Belgium-Burkina partnership is twofold. A start-up programme was signed in 2016. BTC is entrusted with the component of access to water. At the same time a cooperation programme for the 2018-2021 period is being prepared. This approach must ensure rapid, concrete results for the benefit of the population of Burkina Faso.
Together with the National Office for Water and Sanitation we will improve the water supply to the city of Fada N’Gourma, in the east of Burkina Faso. We will strengthen existing production capacity and expand the water distribution network to meet the needs of the city's population. In addition, assistance will be provided to organise the system for collecting sludge of latrines and septic tanks. Also, hygiene and sanitation sensitization activities will be organised.
