How is Burundi divided?
Burundi is divided into three main levels of administrative divisions:
- Provinces: Burundi is divided into 18 provinces, which are further divided into communes.
- Communes: Each province is subdivided into communes. There are a total of 129 communes in Burundi.
- Collines: Communes are further divided into smaller units called collines, which are essentially hills or neighborhoods. Each level of administrative division plays a specific role in governance and local administration.
