Foreign Assistance in Burkina Faso

In November 2015, following more than a year of political unrest, Burkina Faso elected a new president for the first time in almost 30 years. The election, determined to be free and fair by international standards, bolstered a commitment to democracy that Burkinab demonstrated in October 2014 when a mass citizen protest brought the resignation of long-standing President Blaise Compaore. This nascent democratic step is challenged by a lack of governmental checks and balances, and public perception of inequality before the law. U.S. assistance to Burkina Faso will promote engagement by civil society with responsive local and national governments; mitigate the adverse health outcomes of malaria and other health pandemics; and continue to support the professionalization of the Burkinab military. In addition, this assistance will be complemented by a range of regionally funded USAID activities in support of economic growth, health, and countering violent extremism (CVE) goals. Burkina Faso is a key member of the Trans-Sahara Counterterrorism Partnership (TSCTP) as well as a strategic partner of the United States, promoting peace and stability throughout West Africa.

U.S. agencies issue awards to implementing partners for the purpose of delivering foreign assistance abroad. These awards are the basis of the data available on this page. An award consists of individual financial transactions that agencies report to ForeignAssistance.gov each quarter. Award data includes quantitative information, like the aggregate amount of funding agencies have obligated or spent for particular activities, as well as qualitative information, like activity titles, descriptions, locations, and implementers.

The below table displays the foreign assistance awards agencies made, as reported by their accounting systems. Please note that this data represents aggregations of transaction-level information as reported by agencies, based on available fields at the time of reporting. Actual award totals may be higher if agencies have not yet reported transactions for certain years of a given award.
