Introduction

In Burkina Faso, Environmental Assessment is legally required since 1997. The most recent decree on SEA and ESIA has been published in 2015. A mapping on the EA-system was conducted in 2017. 

The national authority for Environmental Assessment is the Bureau Nationale de l'Evaluation Environnementale (BUNEE). 

The NCEA does not have a country programme in Burkina Faso, but it does conduct individual activities in the country. 

Décret n°20151187 / JO N°53 DU 31 DECEMBRE 2015 (EIES)
