The present intervention concerns the Bagré Project. It’s one of the priorities of Burkina Faso's economic development policy. It should contribute to the implementation of the country's five-year programme particularly in terms of food self-sufficiency, Burkina Faso's economic independence from outside the country, drinking water supply for the population, etc. The project consists of the construction of an earth dam equipped with a 16 MW power plant and allowing gravity irrigation downstream of a perimeter of 2,155 ha in the first phase (7,400 ha in the final stage of development) to which a rainfall perimeter of 4,000 ha (11,200 ha in the final stage of development) is associated. The main components of the project are: (i) civil engineering of the dam; (ii) equipment of the power plant and ancillary works; (iii) substations and power line; (iv) access road and bridge of Niaogo; (v) development of the irrigated area; (vi) settlement of migrants and rural development; (vii) deforestation of the flooded basin, etc.
The Bagré project aims to contribute to the economic development of Burkina Faso by contributing: (1) food self-sufficiency through the rational exploitation of developed land, (2) reduction of the country's energy dependence on the outside in the import of petroleum products, (3) drinking water supply to the city of Ouagadougou and secondary urban centres in the south-east of the country, (4) increase in the income of the working peasant masses and (5) training and empowerment of farmers through cooperative movements for self-management.
The project should ultimately benefit the populations of the Tenkodogo Department and the whole of Burkina Faso.
