The FIE is headed by a Chief Executive Officer who has the broadest powers to act on behalf of the Board of Directors. The current Director General is Mr. Wango Fidèle YAMEOGO, Inspector of the Treasury.

The responsibilities of the DG of the FIE are described in the special statutes of the FIE. We can group them into 3 big blocks.

  • prepare the deliberations of the FIE Board of Directors and provide the secretariat;
  • ensure the implementation of the deliberations of the board of directors;
  • ensure the effectiveness, efficiency, transparency and good governance of the FIE; ensure in particular that the ratio of operating costs to service funds is efficient;

To do this, the CEO must:

  • contribute to the mobilization of the national and international resources necessary for the action of the FIE;
  • prepare, sign and monitor projects and agreements in the context of international cooperation, including financing agreements to finance environmental projects by the FIE;
  • ensure quality technical and financial reporting to funding sources.


  1. Specific responsibilities in the cycle of operations

As CEO, he is responsible for the smooth running of the entire cycle of operations (from the launch of the call for projects to the closing of projects). In addition, he plays a special and direct role in the following steps:

  • make requests for bottom-up calls from donors;
  • develop and propose, and then ensure the implementation, of the FIE Funding Code (eligible actors and actions, types of financial support, subsidy rates, etc.);
  • supervise the project cycle provided by the Operations Department (from the launch of calls for projects to the selection, implementation and monitoring of projects); ensure in particular a good technical and financial follow-up of the projects and to intervene in case of problem exceeding the regional level and the Direction of the Operations;
  • prepare and monitor the processing of funding requests from the Financing Committee and the Board of Directors; provide the secretariat of these two bodies;
