In Burkina Faso in 2012, GRET was particularly active in the field of land tenure, launching a project to support the land allocation process within the Di irrigation perimeter and holding a sub-regional conference on the accomplishments of the Negos project. The activities combating malnutrition were also stepped up in urban and periurban areas.
