After 13 years of ethnic warfare that resulted in 300,000 deaths, the 2006 ceasefire started a recovery process for Burundi. Today, USAID actively collaborates with the Government of Burundi (GOB), international donors, and implementing partners to upgrade health and social services, advance democracy, improve food security, and rebuild the country’s economy.
The USAID/EA Regional Conflict Management and Governance (RCMG) program works to promote stability along the borders of Kenya, Uganda, South Sudan, Ethiopia, and Somalia. RCMG supports cross-border peace networks, and is building the capabilities of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development’s (IGAD) Conflict Early Warning and Response Mechanism (CEWARN).
