Since the inauguration of a new government in Burundi, following elections in May-June 2020, there is an improvement of the political and security situation in the country. This has contributed to the voluntary return of a considerable number of refugees from neighbouring countries to their provinces of origin and others continue to express willingness to return home. In most areas of return, the availability of financial resources, basic shelter and water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services are already strained, and currently stretched even further with the arrival of returnees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) who have been negatively affected by disasters (mainly floods, landslides, torrential rains). This project aims to contribute to the longer-term support, reintegration, recovery and resilience of returnees, IDPs, and their communities through: (1) implementing small grants mechanisms aimed at conflict prevention and peace building and livelihoods trainings; (2) the provision of shelter, non-food items, and sanitation and hygiene support for vulnerable displaced populations; and (3) strengthening the delivery of direct assistance and services to meet land access-related protection needs and risks experienced by returnees, including through already strengthened mapping of services, referrals, and case management.
