      ASSESSMENT OF SOCIAL SAFETY NETS ii Burundi EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Following the post-conflict transition, Burundi is entering a new phase of its development, during which the social protection system can play an important role in reducing the structural vulnerability of the poorest layers of the population. Most of the poor are in the Central Asian republics, although the impact of the adjustment is likely to be more severe in the European republics. In sum, the additional social safety nets needed during the transition may have to be placed under the losers rather than only those below an arbitrary income level.
