Aid workers in Burundi worry about food insecurity

Published on 08 March 2011

High food prices, increasing malnutrition and the impact of La Niña are Burundi's major humanitarian concerns as the country moves from post-conflict to a development phase, say aid workers. "We cannot take shortcuts when it comes to development; we need to absolutely address the basic needs of the population before we go beyond that," Jean-Charles Dei, the World Food Programme's acting humanitarian coordinator for Burundi, told IRIN.
