Our video guest this week: Mr. Aboubacar Savadogo

In the follow up of last week's video guest, the theme of the current video interview is the role of regions in development cooperation. However, unlike last week, our video guest this week is a policy maker from an ACP region and not from a region of the EU. Mr. Aboubacar Savadogo is the President of the Council of the northern region in Burkina Faso. He is also the secretary general of the association of regions in Burkina Faso. On the occasion of his participation at the Brussels Development Briefing on humanitarian assistance and rural development (12 May 2010), Mr. Savadogo accorded to us an interview about the role of ACP regions in development cooperation. He explains that the decentralization process in Burkina Faso has increased the jurisdiction of regions over development policy issues. Mr. Savadogo, also speaks about the different associations through which the regions in ACP countries cooperate with other regions in the world to achieve rural development goals such as food security.
