The number of people targeted through coordinated humanitarian appeals rose from 76 million in 31 countries in December 2014 to 78.9 million people in 37 countries in June 2015. This figure now stands at over 82 million.*
US$6.6 billion have been received within the coordinated appeal framework.
The total humanitarian funding received inside and outside coordinated appeals stands at $11.5 billion. It is worth noting that $23.2 billion is the total amount received inside and outside the appeals last year in 2014.
Preliminary results following Burundi’s presidential elections on 21 July placed incumbent President Pierre Nkurunziza in the lead with 69 per cent of the votes.
Media reported that the Burundi presidential elections started on 21 July following a night of explosions and gunfire in the capital. At least two people were reportedly killed.
Elections are being held despite the Government pulling out of talks without agreement reached on a range of issues that would have contributed to the creation of a climate conducive to the holding of credible and peaceful elections. Further, three opposition presidential candidates have withdrawn from the elections.
Media reports indicate that in a meeting with the Government of Burundi and opposition in Bujumbura on 14 July, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, appointed by the East African Community (EAC) to facilitate dialogue, urged Burundi leaders to strive for unity. He added that sectarianism is a threat to development.
