ACT Burundi Forum

ACT Forum Burundi is operational since 2007. Its member organisations are Christian Aid (CA), National Council of Churches in Burundi (CNEB), Norwegian Church Aid (NCA), Lutheran World Federation (LWF); Anglican Province and DanChurch Aid (DCA).

They meet once a month to exchange information on the socio-political situation; emergency humanitarian situations arising from actual or potential natural and human-made disasters and harmonise their advocacy plans for a better collaboration and coordination. They share expertise in capacity building (especially on Sphere  standards), monitoring and evaluation on the forums actions.

So far, the forum has implemented two consolidated ACT appeals that responded to emergency situations that aroused from drought in some parts of the country and floods in others. Food and non-food items, seeds, and training on disaster preparedness and management were provided to surviving  communities.

The Forum has a Memorandum of Understanding.

CNEB is the lead agency and Rev. Jean Berchmans RUSIMBI; CNEB Emergency and Development Programme Coordinator is the current Coordinator for the Forum
