Rwanda Humanitarian Emergency

Rwanda is experiencing an economic growth but faces humanitarian challenges due to its neigbouring countries. Civil unrest in Burundi makes the region unstable. Rwanda is host to refugees, many of them from Burundi. Effects of El-Nino on agriculture and food production has impacted food security and income. UNFPA provides sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services and works to prevent and respond to gender based violence (GBV).
