In 2020, Burundi was hit by devastating natural disasters, triggering population displacements and significantly affecting agricultural production. The situation was further worsened by the socio-economic impact of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and related necessary containment measures. In addition, a significant proportion of Burundian refugees returned to their home country, adding pressure to the already fragile humanitarian context. It is crucial to provide timely agricultural inputs to affected households to mitigate the effects of natural disasters and of the pandemic, while strengthening their resilience to shocks.
