The United Nations Office in Burundi (BNUB) was established by the United Nations Security Council in December 2010 as a scaled-down operation to replace the United Nations Integrated Office in Burundi from 1 January 2011.

BNUB, established by Resolution 1959 (2010), was authorised to:[1]

(a) support the development of national institutions;
(b) promote dialogue;
(c) combat impunity;
(d) promote human rights;
(e) ensure economic and financial policies meet the needs of vulnerable people and advocate resource mobilisation for Burundi;
(f) support with regional integration issues.

The Security Council gave BNUB an initial twelve month mandate until the end of December 2011,[2] which was extended until February 15, 2013.[3]

The BNUB completed its mandate 31 December 2014, and its responsibilities were transferred to the UN Development Assistance Framework - specifically to the Country Team for Burundi. The UN Electoral Observation Mission in Burundi (MENUB) officially began work on 1 January 2015. [4]
