Burundi is one of the world’s poorest countries. More than 64% of the population lives beneath the poverty line, with smallholders comprising most of this number. From 1993 to 2005, the country was wracked by a civil war from which it has hardly managed to recover. In 2016, Burundi recorded negative economic growth due to factors including political instability and crop failures. Smallholders in particular can quickly lose their livelihood because of extreme weather events such as droughts or floods.
