BUJUMBURA, May 30th (ABP) – Burundi Prime Minister, Gervais Ndirakobuca, received Mrs. Violet Kenyana Kakyomya, the new United Nations Resident Coordinator in Burundi, on Wednesday 28 May 2024.

At the end of the meeting, Mrs. Kakyomya said that it was the first time she had met the Prime Minister since her appointment to her new post in Burundi a month ago.

“It was an opportunity to introduce herself and listen to the Prime Minister’s guidelines for carrying out my new mission”, she said.

During their discussions, she said, the two parties once again noted the good relations that exist between Burundi and the United Nations system, which has led to good results in terms of the commitments made, noted the resident coordinator of the United Nations system in Burundi.

They also discussed the challenge of climate change facing Burundi and the other countries in the region, as well as the actions that will be carried out in synergy, on climate action, but also to set up long-standing structural programmes to enable progress to be made despite the impacts of climate change, Ms Kakyomya emphasised.

The United Nations system has reiterated its commitment to supporting the Burundian authorities in tackling the challenges of climate change in a multisectoral manner, according to Mrs. Kakyomya, who concluded that climate change is no longer an environmental issue, but a development challenge.
