Burundian Franc overview

The franc (ISO 4217 code is BIF) is the currency of Burundi. It is nominally subdivided into 100 centimes, although coins have never been issued in centimes since Burundi began issuing its own currency. Only during the period when Burundi used the Belgian Congo franc were centime coins issued.

🇬🇧⬇️ Бурунди – небольшое государство в Восточной Африке на берегу озера Танганьика и никакого отношения к «Нормандии, Шампани и Провансу» не имеет, разве что одним из официальных языков этого государства наравне с местным кирунди является французский. По оценкам ООН, Бурунди – самое бедное государство в мире. После Первой мировой войны эта бывшая немецкая колония отошла Бельгии, и связь с метрополией сохраняется до сих пор: во-первых, бурундийская валюта называется так же, как и бывшая бельгийская, – франк, а во-вторых, с 1964 года, когда Бурунди начала выпуск собственных денег, и до сегодняшнего дня все монеты Бурунди – 1, 5, 10 и 50 франков – чеканятся в Брюсселе. В моей коллекции есть только 50 франков. На аверсе указан номинал монеты, вокруг которого на двух национальных языках написан девиз страны («Единство, труд, прогресс») и наименование банка-эмитента. А вот реверс куда интереснее: на фоне национального флага стоит бурундиец с барабаном на голове. Именно так начинается традиционное выступление бурундийских барабанщиков. Барабаны – культурная гордость страны. Они вырезаются из ствола редкого бурундийского дерева умугувангомы («дерево, дающее голос») и хранятся в особых домах-святилищах. В период королевской власти в Бурунди никто не имел право изготавливать или иметь дома барабан без специального разрешения короля, да и сегодня вывезти барабаны из страны не так-то просто. Однако благодаря национальному перкуссионному ансамблю Royal Drummers of Burundi («Королевские барабанщики из Бурунди») музыка этого африканского государства завоевывает поклонников по всему миру – кстати, их выступления легко найти на YouTube. #монеты #нумизматика #коллекциямонет #бурундийскийфранк #монеты_бурунди #бурундийскиебарабанщики

Burundi: Acute Food Insecurity Situation July - September 2017 and Projection for October - December 2017

The current IPC analysis has counted 1.76 million people (18% of the Burundian population) in the humanitarian phase (IPC Phases 3 and 4). This reflects a slight improvement compared to the same period last year, with 3% of the population in Phase 4 in 2017, compared to 5% in 2016. The Imbo plain is the most affected and most vulnerable to food insecurity with 35% of the population in a food crisis and 4% in the emergency phase (IPC Phase 4) in 2017 B against 14% and 6% respectively in 2016B. The previous poor crop season left significant sequelae that even the good harvests of the 2017B season could not fully compensate, leading to a small increase in food security. The socio-economic crisis, which has become more pronounced since 2015, is increasingly affecting the livelihoods of households. Loss of economic opportunities, greater dependence on the market as prices continue to rise and erosion of purchasing power, make households' access to food ever more difficult.
