Burkina Faso to establish a one-stop-shop for construction permit provision
March 12, 2012
ICF has partnered up with the Government of Burkina Faso to establish a one-stop-shop for construction permit provision, significantly streamlining procedures. Following the project, the time taken to obtain a construction permit has been reduced from 226 days to 19 days, with considerable benefits to business.
Pierre Zerbo Managing Director of Banque de l’Habitat Burkina Faso said:
“We carried out a study and found that the process of getting construction permits is both very long and expensive. Now that CEFAC has been created, we have been able to considerably reduce waiting times and cost, so we can easily get the documents we need to do our work.”
