Joint Assessment in Burkina Faso (2017): a review

By on 29 March 2019

Every year SUN Movement member countries are encouraged to engage in a Joint Assessment (JA) exercise to assess their country’s progress against four processes in pursuit of the strategic objectives specified in the SUN Movement Strategy and Roadmap (2016-2020).

Having joined the SUN Movement in 2011, Burkina Faso was one of the early risers of the movement and held it's first Joint Assessment in 2015. Our Regional Knowledge Manager for the West Africa region, Ambarka Youssoufane, joined Burkina Faso in June 2017 for their 3rd joint assessment to speak with some of the participants. This three part video includes some of the highlights from those conversations.
