Closed Compact Report: Burkina Faso Compact | October 2015

Coordination and Partnerships

MCC is committed to coordinating resources and expertise with other donors and international institutions to to reduce global poverty and create opportunities for long-term growth.

Building off the successes of the Rural Land Governance Project, MCC and USAID announced a collaboration with the Government of Burkina Faso and other international donors to improve land governance and increase transparency in land transactions in June 2013. The partnership, part of the G-7 Transparency Initiative, seeks to benefit a poor, rural population that depends on access to land for food and income-generating activities.

MCC worked in close partnership with international development agencies in the execution of the BRIGHT 2 Schools Project, administered by USAID and implemented by a consortium of non-governmental partners including:

  • Plan International,
  • Catholic Relief Services,
  • Forum for African Women Educationalists and
  • the Tin Tua Association.

MCC coordinated with the Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA) to draft basin-wide Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM) master plans for the Mouhoun and ComoƩ Basins. In July 2014 DANIDA used its funds, following ratification of the two plans by the government, to support implementation of the MCC plans and to produce plans for other watersheds using similar methods.
