Burundi Humanitarian Emergency

UNFPA Tanzania/Sawiche Wamunza

Burundi is among Africa’s most densely populated countries and prone to cyclic conflicts, political instability and violence. Security incidents, continuing political tensions, and a stalled peace process, coupled with rising food insecurity, has resulted in the deterioration of the humanitarian situation including ongoing population displacement and refugee outflow. There are 3.6 million people in need of humanitarian assistance. More than 400,000 Burundians have fled to neighbouring countries, primarily the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda. Out of the refugee population, 54 percent are children. Refugees staying at camps have also reported a high number gender-based violence incidents. UNFPA is leading the gender-based violence sub-cluster.
