CHAPTER: PRESENTATION OF THE CONTEXT CONTEXT: In spite of good pluviometry allowing an abundant agriculture, ignorance makes this population, primarily rural, one of poorest of the country. This poverty is the cause of the massive exploitation of wood become the independent source of incomes of the women of the locality. From the quantitative transformation of wood into fuel, the forest reserves of the province are threatened of disappearance if nothing is undertaken on this subject. Concerning the pollution or the degradation of nature, the lack of cleansing could be the main cause of this degradation. The plastic sachets never are not preserved or are stored for lack of sensitizing on this level and the ignorance of local associations. The consequences which could come from the plastic sachets on our environment are incalculable. For this purpose, one can recognize that the transformation of the plastic sachets in this locality does not exist and remains the enormous problem which our environment has. For the tourist shutter, the inhabitants of the province of Poni knew to preserve until our days, certain values cultural which make of the "Lobi" an informed conservative. Living in an admirable vegetation, the Lobi country is located mainly between the hills, which gives him a geographical characteristic not equalized in Burkina Faso. It is necessary to add the museum of the age of the "branch lobi" which exists in Gaoua. The province of Poni is populated various ethnos groups of which Gans, a minority with the very rich and alive cultural values. It is in this locality that a king is found: king Gan, with the site of the tombs of all the successions of kings who reigned in Gan country. These tombs are called the "Sanctuaries of kings Gans" in the village of Obiré. It is in this zone of the country lobi that exists one of fantastic and mysterious the fortress which existed since XIème century according to research of professor Tiedga. The goal of archaeological research is to discover paternity, the use and the age of this monument called "Ruins of Loropéni" and to register it in the world heritage of UNESCO; what was fortunately the case very recently in June 2009, in Spain. The monument remains and remains most important and the most alive ancestral architecture of the under-area. We could also quote the colonial caves of the department of Gbomblora, etc In this outline on the tourist context, let us note that the town of Gaoua and the province of Poni, in general, profit from enormous tourist frequentations, which allowed certain commercial infrastructures, associations and even private to draw from enormous profits and that thanks to the cultural richness and from the tourist potential of this province.
