Burundi - Regional Humanitarian Response Plan 2017–2019

to assist
77 000 people

FAO requires
USD 8 million

January – December 2018

Political, security and related humanitarian conditions in Burundi aren’t expected to improve and will lead to a continued outflow of Burundian refugees in 2018. As the phenomenon is becoming protracted, promoting access to agricultural livelihoods is key to achieve refugees’ self-reliance.


FAO is working with partners in the Food Security Cluster to:

• Improve food security by strengthen agricultural livelihood activities.

• Promote social cohesion between refugees and host communities, including through protection of natural environment.

• Foster economic self-reliance for refugees and host communities, reducing dependency on aid and promoting socio-economic growth in line with national development plans.
