Rwanda Humanitarian Emergency

Rwanda is experiencing economic growth and is performing well on its SDG goals. Due to the conflict in the neighboring countries, Rwanda hosts about 163,000 refugees, mostly mostly from Burundi and DRC, in six camps and urban areas. The largest camp in Rwanda, Mahama Refugee camp in Kirehe District, hosts 51,000 Burundian refugees. Continuing conflict in those countries could force more people seek refuge in Rwanda and other countries in the Great Lakes region. UNFPA is actively coordinating gender-based violence discussions in the protection cluster in Rwanda.
