- Project duration: September 2020 - September 2021
- Project status: finished
- Funding: Public institutions (Other projects /Project)

The project is financed by the International Organization of Migration (IOM) and aims at providing a multi-hazard risk assessment of the country of Burundi at national and provincial scale, also considering the effect of climate change. Main hazards considered include:
- torrential rains,
- pluvial and fluvial floods and
The project will be carried out by an international consortium led by a Spanish company (IDOM).
EURAC will be responsible for
- harmonization of geospatial exposure data (support to coordinator)
- landslides hazard and risk assessment,
- social vulnerability assessment and multi-hazard risk analysis
The strategic objective is to consolidate expertise and methodologies for:
- large scale landslide risk
- multi-hazard risk assessment
- social vulnerability analysis

The activities of the Burundi project have resulted in a new multi-hazard risk analysis being carried out at national and local scale. To bridge the gap in data availability, local authoritative sources have been integrated by international and global resources. A uptodate exposure model has been implemented, and complemented by an innovative socio-economical analysis. Furthermore, a data-driven statistical susceptibility model for shallow landslides has been derived at national scale.
