Latest figures analysis

IDMC’s displacement estimates for Burundi come from data collected monthly by IOM, regarding people fleeing political violence. Most IDPs became displaced in 2015, although the threat of political violence has continued to displace people on a smaller scale in 2017. The data on new displacements is an IDMC calculation based on variations of IOM’s monthly stock figures. This figure is likely to be an underestimate as not all of Burundi’s provinces have been equally covered by IOM surveying for the entire year.
