Burundi joined SWA in 2010. The government, with the support of its partners, developed a National Water (PNEau) and a National Sanitation Policy (NAP), which are important political guidelines for the water and sanitation sector. The Government and development partners collaborate through the Water, Sanitation and Environment Cluster (GSEAE).
In keeping with the National Development Plan 2018-2027 (PND2018-2027), Burundi commits to updating the core sector documents (policies, strategies, and legal framework). It is also making WASH a national priority and commits to increasing its budget from 0.5% of GDP to 10% by 2027
