Burkina: “If the extension of cities is not controlled, soon there will be no more space for agriculture, for livestock, for the environment” (PM)
Ouagadougou, May 30, 2023 (AIB) – Prime Minister Apollinaire Joachimson Kyélem de Tabèla, said Tuesday, during his speech on the situation of the Nation that if the extension of cities is not controlled, soon there will be no more space for agriculture, for breeding, for the environment and that it is time to build in height.
“If the expansion of cities is not controlled, soon there will be no more space for agriculture, for breeding, for the environment. It is time to understand that it is necessary to build in height and contribute to the improvement of the living environment by making more accessible the essential conveniences such as running water, electricity and roads”, declared the Prime Minister, Apollinaire Joachimson Kyélem de Tambela.
The Prime Minister spoke Tuesday in Ouagadougou, before the Transitional Legislative Assembly (ALT) on the national situation.
He indicated that in real estate, a law on real estate promotion is under discussion at the level of the ALT.
In March 2023, the government adopted a draft law on property development, in order to guarantee better land management and preserve arable land for current and future generations.
“It aims to reorganize the sector by bringing order to it, by redefining its mission,” he said.
According to Apollinaire Joachimson Kyélem de Tambèla, no one can dispute that our cities, especially the biggest ones like Ouagadougou and Bobo-Dioulasso extend to infinity.
“This makes it difficult to control their development, their sanitation, and their supervision”, explained the Head of Government.
Since 2015, the country has been plagued by terrorist attacks that have left hundreds dead, more than 2 million displaced people and the closure of many schools and health establishments.
