La CLTS Knowledge Hub, basée à l'Institute of Development Studies, a organisé un atelier régional à Arusha en Tanzanie, du 16 au 20 avril 2018 avec l'aide de la SNV Tanzanie. L'événement a réuni les personnes impliquées dans la programmation de l'EAH en milieu rural dans huit pays de la région (Burundi, Érythrée, Éthiopie, Kenya, Malawi, Ouganda, Tanzanie et Zambie) aux côtés d'experts travaillant aux niveaux régional et mondial. Durant les cinq jours de l'atelier, les participants ont échangé leurs expériences, les innovations, les problèmes rencontrés et les acquis et ils ont recensé les manques de connaissances dans le but d'améliorer les capacités et l'apprentissage futur et d'arriver à un consensus sur la façon d'aller de l'avant. Par ailleurs, la SNV Tanzanie a facilité une visite d'étude dans ses zones du projet Assainissement durable et Hygiène pour Tous (SSH4A) dans les districts de Babati et Karatu.

Elle résume les discussions qui se sont tenues toute la semaine, met en avant les pratiques prometteuses et considère des actions prioritaires pour aller de l'avant.
CLTS Knowledge Hub;

Women's World Banking;
This document presents an annual report of Women's World Banking, which works with their network and their clients to understand their financial needs, look for new market opportunities to meet those needs, develop tools and programs that support financial institutions to better serve low-income women, beta test financial products and services tailored to meet women's needs, and apply learning from beta tests to bring these products to scale.
Women's Refugee Commission (formerly Women's Commission for Refugee Women and Children);
This document presents securng womens land rights and learning from successful experiences in Rwanda and Burundi. One of the best ways to learn is to experience: this allows people to see, touch, and "taste" new approaches, knowledge, and methodologies, which can then be shared and applied elsewhere. This is what a "Learning Route" aims to do, and this was the aim of the "Innovative Tools and Approaches to Secure Women's Land Rights" Learning Route, which took place in Rwanda and Burundi on 4-11 February 2014. The intention was to learn from the experiences of diverse organisations working to promote women's land rights. Those participating in the Learning Route, the ruteros, were 16 women and men working for civil society organisations (CSOs) and government programmes in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, ranging in age from those in their 20s just starting out to those in their 50s with decades of experience. Together, they visited three CaseStudy projects, one in Rwanda and two in Burundi, to learn about tools and approaches used to secure women's land rights and to question the implementing organisations, local leaders, and women and men from local communities to better understand how these worked in practice.
Alliance for Financial Inclusion;

Driven by the need to provide better data, BRB launched the country's first national-level financial inclusion survey projectfunded by AFI. The goalwas to establish a baseline to inform policy decisions aimed at deepening the level of financial inclusion in Burundi. Moreover, collecting comprehensive financial inclusion data was seen as one of the steps that the BRB planned to take in its journey towards the establishment of a national financial inclusion strategy in Burundi.
United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP);
This report focuses on the relationship between women and natural resources in conflict-affected settings, and discusses how the management of natural resources can be used to enhance women's engagement and empowerment in peacebuilding processes. Part I of the report examines the relationship between women and natural resources in peacebuilding contexts, reviewing key issues across three main categories of resources: land, renewable and extractive resources. Part II discusses entry points for peacebuilding practitioners to address risks and opportunities related to women and natural resource management, focusing on political participation, protection and economic empowerment.
This document examines the contribution of microfinance institutions (MFIs) on the performance of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and the empowerment of women in Burundi. Its overall objective is to analyze the impact of the services of MFIs on SMEs and women's empowerment. Several specific objectives were formulated and analyses were guided by two assumptions: MFIs are the main source of funding for MFIs one hand, and they are a lever of empowerment of women. The study uses in its methodological aspect a combination of statistical approaches. The study focused on three targets: the IMF on the supply side, SMEs and Beneficiaries of ECCS on the demand side.

For two years, between 2009 and 2011, TrustAfrica, with support from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, has implemented a Millennium Development Goal 3 (MDG3) project entitled Enhancing Women's Dignity. The project covered seven countries in francophone sub-Saharan Africa: Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Mali, Niger, and Senegal. The Enhancing Women's Dignity project aimed at building capacity to reduce violence against women, and increase women's political participation. The document covers seven case studies of compelling projects that were carried out by grantee partners in each of the target countries.
Open Society Institute;
The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is the largest country in sub-Saharan Africa. Rwanda and Burundi are among the continent's smallest states. More than just neighbors, these three countries are locked together by overlapping histories and by extreme political and economic challenges. They all score very low on the United Nations' human development index, with DRC and Burundi among the half-dozen poorest and most corrupt countries in the world. They are all recovering uncertainly from conflicts that involved violence on an immense scale, devastating communities and destroying infrastructure.
Their populations are overwhelmingly rural and young. In terms of media, radio is by far the most popular source of news. Levels of state capture are high, and media quality is generally poor. Professional journalists face daunting obstacles. The threadbare markets can hardly sustain independent outlets. Amid continuing communal and political tensions, the legacy of "hate media" is insidious, and upholding journalism ethics is not easy when salaries are low. Ownership is non-transparent.
Telecoms overheads are exorbitantly high. In these conditions, new and digital media -- which flourish on consumers' disposable income, strategic investment, and vibrant markets -- have made a very slow start. Crucially, connectivity remains low. But change is afoot, led by the growth of mobile internet access.
In this report, Marie-Soleil Frère surveys the news landscapes of DRC, Burundi, and Rwanda. Marshaling an impressive range of data, she examines patterns of production and consumption, the often grim realities of law and regulation, the embryonic state of media policy, the role of donors, and the positive impact of online platforms. Most media outlets now have an online presence. SMS has become a basic tool for reporters. Interactivity gives voice to increasing numbers of listeners. The ease of digital archiving makes it possible to create a collective media "memory" for the first time. Chinese businesses are winning tenders for infrastructure projects.
Above all, the unstoppable flow of digitized information enables ever more people to learn about current events and available services. "The average news consumer in Central Africa will soon leap to new opportunities," Frère predicts, "without having to pass through the intermediate stages of a personal computer and a fixed telephone line." The report ends with a set of practical recommendations relating to infrastructure, strategies to reduce access costs for journalists and the public, education and professionalization, donor activity, governance, regulation, and media management.
Pendant deux ans, entre 2009 et 2011, TrustAfrica, avec le soutien du ministère néerlandais des Affaires étrangères, a mis en place un projet entrant dans le cadre de l'objectif du Millénaire pour le développement 3 (OMD 3). Ce projet, intitulé Renforcer la dignité de la femme était mis en oeuvre dans sept pays d'Afrique francophone sub-saharienne: Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroun, République démocratique du Congo (RDC), Mali, Niger et Sénégal.
