Burkina Faso is the epicentre of a multidimensional humanitarian crisis affecting the Sahel region, driven by a combination of factors including armed violence and insecurity; demographic pressures; climate change; and health crises. From January to June 2023, there was an increase in the level of impact in terms of human casualties and the internal displacement of civilians due to violence and more than 1.3 million people are living in more than 40 besieged towns and villages. Violence has led to the internal displacement of more than 2,062,534 people and disrupting access to essential social services for 5,500,000 people in need of humanitarian assistance. As of 31 May, 6,149 schools are closed in Burkina Faso due to the ongoing attacks, affecting over a million children (49 per cent girls) and 31,000 teachers (32 per cent women). Nevertheless, UNICEF continues to deliver its programmes in various locations despite the volatility of the security context.
