STORYLINE
During a visit to Burkina Faso, Acting Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Ramesh Rajasingham met with several communities affected and displaced by the violence in Djibo and Kaya.

A large-scale humanitarian emergency is unfolding in Burkina Faso where rising insecurity and conflict over the past two years have provoked the world's fastest-growing displacement crisis with more than a million people driven from their homes.

Humanitarian needs have increased sharply, and a record 3.5 million people will need humanitarian assistance in 2021. The humanitarian problems in Burkina Faso have been further compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic.
