REGIONAL SITUATION OVERVIEW

report IRIN

Burundi isn’t at war, but it has all the humanitarian hallmarks of a country that is.

Campaigning began this week ahead of a 17 May referendum that will allow President Pierre Nkurunziza to stay in office until 2034. A government clampdown and an uptick in political violence are raising fears that the humanitarian situation will deteriorate further as civil liberties and the rule of law are eroded, prompting more people to join some 400,000 already seeking refuge in neighbouring countries.

Key findings:

  • About 7,000 people arrived in Burundi between 24 and 29 January from DRC, and new arrivals have been reported daily since then.

  • Even though the displaced have been arriving mostly in southern provinces of Burundi, the north and east of the country are also likely to be affected.

  • Poor underlying conditions in affected areas of Burundi exacerbate acute shelter, food, WASH, health, and protection needs.
