The Special Program for the Creation of Jobs for Young People and Women (PSCE / IF) aims to promote access to jobs and the acquisition of vocational skills by young people and women, with a view to opening up opportunities for them and to ensure sustainable integration into the labor market. In addition, the Integrated Women's Empowerment Program aims to strengthen their productive capacities and their participation in Burkina Faso's economic and social development by 2020. 

The consolidation and maintenance of peace is a primary responsibility of national governments, which must determine the necessary priorities and strategies by involving all groups of society. In order to consolidate peace, the root causes of conflict - poverty, exclusion, discrimination, the effects of climate change - must be addressed.

With regard to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which continues to be of great concern, Burkina Faso remains convinced that its solution can only be a political, peaceful just and equitable one based on the existence of two States, living side by side, within safe and recognized borders.
