The 2019-2020 Burundi Regional Refugee Response Plan (RRRP) outlines the multi-agency response strategy and financial requirements of 35 partners supporting host governments to provide protection and assistance across the four main countries of asylum, as well as in Burundi for returning refugees. An expanded two-year timeframe, inclusion of impact on the host community, and the addition of several new partners, including UNDP and a number of local NGOs, are all reflective of efforts to make the 2019-2020 Burundi RRRP more comprehensive and solutions-oriented.
In light of the number of overlapping refugee situations in the region, another new direction in 2019 is to emphasise Country Refugee Response Plans (CRRP), which articulate the multi-agency response for all refugee populations at the country level. In presenting a coherent approach to the Burundi refugee situation, this Regional RRP summarizes the elements of the Country RRPs that relate to the Burundi situation.
