Poste proposé : Programme Manager (DRR) (P3)

Burundi is a small, landlocked country in East Africa, with a growing population of 11.5 million inhabitants and a staggering population density of 451 per km2, which makes it the third most densely populated country in Africa. While it has recently come out of years of unrest, the country is still unstable, with fragile institutions and tensions among and across various levels of government.
Burundi is regularly affected by a variety of hydro-meteorological hazards, including torrential rains and hailstorms, triggering frequent floods and landslides, and intense winds. The country is also located on the Albertine Rift, and has experienced considerable damage during past earthquake events. Large parts of the country also suffer from slower-onset hazards and
environmental degradation processes, including drought, soil erosion, and a loss of freshwater

In this context, reducing disaster risk and managing disasters are key to Burundi's policy. The
National Development Plan of Burundi 2018-2027 identifies the management of disaster risks
and the reinforcement of national capacity as one of its strategic objectives. Burundi has also
developed and adopted a National Strategy for Disaster Risk Reduction for 2018-2025 and an
Action Plan 2018-2021, which are aligned with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk
Reduction 2015-2030.
Although the National Strategy and UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) are in
line with the Sendai Framework, and the National Platform and other stakeholders are working
to achieve the objectives identified in these key documents, institutional and operational
capacity of the national and local Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) stakeholders as well as their
resources are still very limited, primarily due to the country's fragile political and economic
situation. Moreover, the country currently lacks some basic but key information on risk, as well
as key risk management procedures, knowledge and infrastructure.
In order to address some of these challenges, IOM is now launching a country wide DRR programme, focusing on 3 main objectives:
1. Identification of risks linked with key hazards in the country;
2. Strengthening of Disaster Risk Management procedures and coordination mechanisms at all levels, with a specific focus on provincial and municipal authorities, as well as engagement of communities at risk; Protection of communities through community-led hazard prevention and mitigation interventions, including non-structural and infrastructural strengthening and sustainable ecosystem management and restoration.

5. Identify gaps, operational challenges and constraints and take action to increase effectiveness and streamline procedures for the DRR project.
