About Burundi

The cooperation of Flemish higher education institutions with Burundi goes back a long time and since 2005 many projects were executed, mainly with the University of Burundi. From 2003 to 2023 VLIR-UOS spent more than € 6,2 million, including an Institutional University Cooperation (IUC) with the University of Burundi. This IUC partnership initiated in 2010 and ended in 2022. The cooperation continues through SI and TEAM-projects.

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.
