About Burundi

Burundi is an important partner country of VLIR-UOS even if most cooperation between 2003 and 2021 was centred on the University of Burundi. VLIR-UOS spent more than € 6 millions in cooperation with Burundi, mainly in the framework of the Institutional University Cooperation programme (IUC) with the University of Burundi, initiated in 2010.

Burundi is also one of our 29 scholarship countries.

Burundi and Agenda 2030 - country reference framework

VLIR-UOS revised its country approach towards an ‘Agenda 2030 on Sustainable Development’ centred approach. Moreover, VLIR-UOS wants to facilitate connections between different actors and projects present in a given country. With these objectives in mind, the Country Reference Framework (CRF) for Burundi supports teams of academics when identifying and formulating project proposals, by providing a context analysis focused on Agenda 2030 on Sustainable Development and the higher education sector in Burundi, and by providing an overview of Belgian development actors active in Burundi, their ongoing projects and partners, in view of exploration of opportunities for synergy and complementarity. Belgian Non-Governmental Actors involved in the geographic Joint Strategic Framework (JSF) Burundi as well as those involved in the thematic JSF on Higher Education and Science for Sustainable Development have been included.
