Promoting Youth Participation through Development Policy in Burkina Faso

Grantee: Balai Citoyen

This project aims to both increase citizen participation of young people in the electoral process and implement the formulation and monitoring of public policies in seven municipalities in Burkina Faso. Advocacy and a series of awareness-raising actions will allow the establishment of at least seven local networks dedicated to the promotion of citizen participation of youth at the level of decision-making bodies. These actions will also lead public authorities to take formal measures in response to the demands formulated by young people. Project activities integrate actions in response to the Covid-19 crisis and its various implications for youth.
