Executive Summary

For 2017, humanitarian partners will require $22.2 billion to meet the needs of 92.8 million people in 33 countries. The initial appeal for 2016 stood at $20.1 billion to meet the needs of 87.6 million people in 37 countries. This is in stark contrast to the $2.7 billion called for in the first six inter-agency humanitarian appeals launched in 1992.

Aperçu de la situation

Eighteen months after the outbreak of large-scale violence in Burundi, people’s access to essential services is severely restricted. Insecurity and macroeconomic factors, including a decline in external financial support resulting in massive budget cuts (including education- 30%, health- 54%, human rights- 65% and water- 72%) have severely hampered the provision of basic services. Pregnant women and children under five, who rely on state-provided free medical care, are particularly at risk.

The civil unrest in Burundi has led to an outflow of over 210,000 refugees (as of 31 October 2015) to neighbouring countries of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Rwanda, Tanzania, and as far away as Uganda and Zambia. It started in Bujumbura in April 2015, with a peak in June, ahead of the contested Presidential election that took place on 21 July 2015. Since then, a tense political crisis and a climate of fear and intimidation have spread throughout the country.
