Overview

Fifteen years of civil war since 1993, combined with extreme poverty, a fragile political process and recurrent climatic shocks, have had a strongly negative impact on Burundi’s economic and nutrition indicators. Only 28 percent of the population is food-secure and as many as 58 percent are chronically malnourished. Food security for the majority of Burundians has not improved in recent years, despite a gradual return to peace.
