Agriculture is the backbone of Burundi’s economy. More than 90% of families in Burundi are subsistence farmers who rely on farming to meet their food, nutritional and income needs. Even during harvest season when food is most plentiful, households spend up to two-thirds of their income on food. Burundi faced a food production deficit of over 32%. It’s also the most population-dense country in Africa.
