report UN Children's Fund

The cycle of violence and unrest that Burundi has been experiencing since April 2015 has become protracted. An estimated 110,000 people are displaced and 325,000 have fled to neighbouring countries.1 Communities are experiencing the erosion of coping mechanisms, with chronically high levels of food and nutrition insecurity, as well as recurring flooding and displacement. The protection crisis is disproportionately affecting children, who make up approximately half of Burundi’s population.

Burundi has continued to endure large scale displacement since President Nkurunziza’s announcement in April 2015 to run for a third term in office, with 3 million people now in need of humanitarian assistance. A total of 325,850 Burundians have fled the country since April 2015, the vast majority to Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. In October 2016 alone, 10,000 refugees arrived in Tanzania.

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.

Highlights

  • Given the deteriorating food insecurity across the country, there is a risk that more vulnerable Burundian families will try to cross the borders, while the capacities of host countries and humanitarian agencies providing assistance are already stretched.

Introduction

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.

Les conditions de vie des réfugiés burundais varient selon leurs ressources et la politique du pays d’accueil. Pour quelques-uns, des opportunités se créent ; pour la majorité, le quotidien est synonyme d’attente. Cet article, le deuxième d’une série de trois, retrace des trajectoires bouleversées tandis que les ruptures se superposent – sociales, économiques, scolaires.

Over the last year and a half, some 300,000 Burundians have fled their homeland to seek refuge in neighbouring countries.

So far, this unfolding refugee crisis and the escalating political situation in Burundi have received little attention in the mainstream media.

Violent clashes between protestors and police began in Burundi in April 2015 when incumbent President Pierre Nkurunziza announced his intension to run for a third term – a move deemed unconstitutional by his opponents.
