As part of its Global Climate Change strategy, USAID supports an integrated program that improves the sustainable management of water in Rwanda. The program builds local capacity to monitor and manage water resources and helps develop water and sanitation services to the public, with a focus on the rural poor. It has positive benefits for health, food security and resilience to climate change among vulnerable populations.
Most recently, USAID began to build a water system in one of Rwanda’s driest regions which will serve over 30,000 individuals as well as key community institutions like schools, health centers, local churches and commercial centers.
