World Bank*

Burundi, a small, predominantly rural and landlocked country, is at a critical stage in its development. Since 2000, Burundi has made progress in consolidating peace and security, establishing a relatively stable macroeconomic environment, rebuilding institutions, and improving sector outcomes, in particular in basic health and education. To improve competitiveness by establishing an enabling environment for inclusive growth and poverty reduction, the Bank Group will focus on programs aimed at reducing infrastructure-related bottlenecks and improving the business climate. To help increase resilience by consolidating social stability, the Bank will support interventions that improve access and quality of social services and increase safety nets to reduce livelihood volatility, all aimed at improving trust between state and citizens. To strengthen governance, the Bank will aim to increase the efficiency of public expenditure by strengthening public sector management, including public financial management and efforts to prevent corruption and increasing the demand for good governance.

European Commission*

The Country Strategy Paper for Burundi (2008-2013) presents the strategic framework for cooperation between the European Commission (EC) and Burundi under the 10th European Development Fund (EDF). EC assistance will concentrates on three fields: infrastructures, rural rehabilitation and development, health and general budget support. EC support contributes to road building and rural development. It will also support a national-scale health policy pilot project. Additional aid will be granted for action on governance, support for non-state actors and to strengthen institutions. The multi-annual indicative programme for Burundi under the 10th EDF amounts to €188 million ('A' envelope) to address these priorities. Additional € 18 million have been allocated to fight against food and nutrition insecurity in the framework of the MDG initiative. Cross-cutting issues like gender, the environment and building capacity are integrated into all EU assistance in Burundi
