The State of Hunger in Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso faces a complex and severe humanitarian crisis caused by conflict, insecurity, COVID-19, and climate disasters, including drought and flooding. One in five people in Burkina Faso is in need of aid, and 1.4 million have been forced to flee their homes.
