Launched in 2004, civil defence assistance is a major partnership in the field of state-to-state cooperation between Burkina Faso and the Principality of Monaco.

  • Development of the Burkina Faso National Fire Brigade (six regions covered by firefighting teams, out of Burkina Faso’s total of 13, including the most recent in Boromo, in 2014)
  • Impact of Monaco’s technical and financial support

Overall objective 

To support the Government of Burkina Faso in the field of civil defence.

Beneficiaries 

Direct beneficiaries :
Members of the National Fire Brigade (1,200 people).

Indirect beneficiaries : 
The population of Burkina Faso as a whole.
