Living in Burkina Faso
Burkina Faso is situated in West Africa, bordered by Mali, Niger, Benin, Togo, Ghana and the Ivory Coast. Its climate is largely characterised by warm semi-arid regions or tropical savanna, meaning it has a rainy season and a dry season yearly. This makes it prone to natural disasters and with a growing population, last measured at 20.1 million people in 2017 and is growing by 3.6% annually, food insecurity is a huge issue. The World Bank and World Food Programme are working with the country to solve the issues, but no huge gains have been made. It is abundant in natural resources including gold, limestone, marble and salt, amongst others. Economically, this means 47% of Burkina Faso’s exports are in gold, but agriculture employs 80% of the population, thus cotton makes up 31% of exports. Despite this it is one of the poorest countries in the world and 43.7% of the population live below the poverty line. Culturally, oral tradition remains very important in Burkina Faso and traditional Burkinabè performances involve masked dances, which from the French colonial influences have grown these traditions to a national theatre style. Burkina Faso was colonised during the Scramble for Africa in the 1890s, but from 1958 it became self-governing as part of the French community, finally achieving independence in 1960.
