In Burundi, natural hazards and disasters have become a national issue. The most dangerous environmental risks are landslides, flooding and droughts. The risk of being directly affected by these dangers is increasing for the people of the country, in the face of climate change, rapid population growth, the over-use of natural resources and other natural and man-made factors. Against this background, adelphi has been working with a national expert (GITEC) to develop disaster preparedness plans for three pilot municipalities in Burundi. Mutambu is one of the three municipalities whose “plan de contingence”, disaster contingency plan, is now an example for the development of further disaster preparedness plans in Burundi.
