ECHO funded humanitarian projects in Burundi

In Burundi, DG ECHO (Humanitarian aid) has been supporting projects implemented by various UN, international and non-governmental humanitarian organisations, among others by UNHCR, Médecins Sans Frontières or Solidarités. Regarding sectors of activities funded by the EC, food aid and health programmes have been the priorities, making up more than 70 % of the total €17 million annual budget (2006) for Burundi. In addition, projects have been implemented aiming at improving water and sanitation conditions, and protecting refugees and displaced persons. ECHO has been following a needs-based approach, focusing on the most vulnerable parts of the population, which is also reflected in ECHO’s objectives for Burundi for 2007. In addition to multi-sectoral humanitarian assistance provided to these vulnerable groups, an increased emphasis is being put on linking relief and development activities in order to strengthen long-term sustainability of the projects.
