We will clarify things right away.

When we talk about NRM, we are talking about exploiting natural resources in such a way as to allow these resources to be renewed.

The concern is that our generation is not going to eat everything, leaving nothing for the people who will be born and live after us.

So make reasonable use of water, land, forest, air and other natural resources.

The commune Yendéré is located in the department of Niangoloko, 498 kilometers from Ouagadougou, straddling the border between Côte d'Ivoire and Burkina Faso.

Rainfall averages 951.4 mm over the year.

It rains well and the land is fertile.

The economy in the department of Niangoloko is mainly based on agriculture (cereals and oilseed crops), market gardening and livestock (milk, meat, eggs) on family farms and a few small agricultural businesses. As we have already said, this zone is not lacking in assets, whether in plant or animal production. With population pressure, what's a chance becomes a concern. There is strong pressure on land. And all of this puts a strain on natural resources.

Hence the use of Income Generating Actions (AGR), to strengthen the Management of Natural Resources (NRM).

Field technicians talk about sustainable agriculture and intelligent breeding.

The idea that guides the action is that we must help vulnerable families to develop other types of activities, so that people do not go to destroy natural resources in order to survive.
