Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso has progressed over the last ten years despite its very low human development. Administrative burden went down, transparency and e-government increased (including some e-participation) and even judicial independence progressed. Freedom of the press remained rather stable, but well above the average of the region and income peers. This country can still be expected to progress gradually and needs support for it, as its civil society becomes more digitally empowered and education progresses.
