Burundi is located in an earthquake-prone zone of the Great Lakes Region, often affected by extreme weather and catastrophic natural events. Burundi’s climate-related events, combined with a socio-political and security situation in decline since 2015, have resulted in mass displacement within the country. As of October 2017, 123,510 people are internally displaced in Burundi as a result of natural disasters, out of a total of 189,000 IDPs.  Limited access to land and food scarcity are two critical issues faced by Burundi’s displaced population. Poor rainfall, rising costs of food staples and inflation have contributed to the lack of access to food by the most vulnerable of populations. In general, the humanitarian situation of IDPs continues to deteriorate, and humanitarian assistance is critically important, especially following the occurrence of natural disasters or other emergency events. 

As part of the inter-agency Joint Response Plan by the UN system, NGOs and other partners to facilitate the safe, dignified and orderly return of Burundians from Tanzania (Sept 2017 – Dec 2018), IOM will facilitate the voluntary return of displaced returnees in partnership with the humanitarian community, considering the needs and concerns of local communities. Additionally, through its interventions, IOM intends to improve health in crisis interventions, focus on disaster risk reduction, and improve emergency response coordination to create a harmonized and efficient response.

IOM is co-lead of the NFI/Shelter and CCCM sectors, co-lead of the anti-trafficking task team, and is actively engaged in the United Nations Country Team (UNCT), the Programme Management Team Meetings (PMT), the Inter-Sector meetings led by OCHA, the Protection Sector, the Health Sector and the Logistics Sector, and maintains strong connections with the humanitarian community and government agencies. IOM works with the National Platform for Natural Disaster and Catastrophes, which represents 17 ministries that cover the areas of assistance to IDPs and assists in the implementation and expansion of DTM and further trainings in close collaboration with the volunteers of the Burundian Red Cross.

Overall Targeted Beneficiaries: 575,150 individuals, including 220,000 IDPs, 150 victims of trafficking, 4,500 mental health patients, 350,000 migrants, and 500 Border Management Officials
