1. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The past year witnessed important milestones in the country’s progress towards consolidation of peace and economic recovery. These include the signing of a ceasefire agreement by the last remaining rebel faction, the National Liberation Forces (Forces Nationales pour la Liberation [FNL]), on 7 September 2006, and the launch of long-term development planning frameworks such as the Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP). At the same time, the consequences of the decade-long conflict and the government’s weak delivery capacity warrant continued humanitarian attention.

Important humanitarian challenges remain in 2007, including the need to mitigate the negative side-effects of the expected return of approximately 100,000 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and more than 390,000 refugees in view of the already scarce resources, in particular land.

BASIC FACTS

Burundi ranks as the 8th poorest country in the world in the 2005 Human Development Index;

68% of the population lives under the poverty line;

41% of the population is chronically malnourished;

More than one million people will require food aid in 2007;

There are 100,000 IDPs and an estimated 395,000 Burundian refugees in countries of asylum, most of them in Tanzania.

The Burundi CAP 2006 included many early recovery and peace-building activities in addition to the more traditional humanitarian projects in order to support the new government’s momentous task of rebuilding a country emerging from a protracted crisis. Following the progress made in national planning for medium and long-term development activities however, the CAP 2007 will focus solely on core humanitarian concerns and is guided by the following three strategic priorities:

1. Surveillance of the humanitarian situation and early warning, with particular attention to the needs of displaced persons and returnees;

2. Rapid response to localised humanitarian emergencies;

3. Reduction of the vulnerability resulting from the lack of access to basic services.

The Burundi CAP 2007 requests an overall amount of US$131.6 million to implement its planned humanitarian activities.
