Mineral investment promotion

  • Executing agency: UN/DESA Division for Sustainable Development
  • Start date: 9 June 1994
  • Partners: UNDP
  • Total budget: USD 2,981,492

The purpose of the project is to create a database on mineral resources and perfect national professionals in the various fields of the mining economy in order to promote private investments in the mining sector. While the previous phase concentrated on precious metals i.e. gold, the goal of the present phase is to develop the economic potential of Burkina Faso through the promotion of industrial minerals, notably construction materials.
