Burundi: Plan of Action

Burundi: Plan of Action
Jan 2010

The ending of violent conict and subsequent process of democratization has opened up the political environment and enabled peace and stability to be established in Burundi. However, the most basic needs of the population remain unmet. In addition to the structural challenges faced by the rural community, there has been an unprecedented rise in unpredictable climate-related hazards over the past decade. At the same time, household lands have undergone a process of ‘atomization’, leaving households with smaller parcels of land on which to farm, which has further increased levels of vulnerability. Peace and stability can only be fully established in Burundi if urgent actions are undertaken to assist the most vulnerable members of these households.
