Country 

Rwanda

Region 

East Africa

Summary

The Government of Rwanda requested support to update the earlier energy policy and develop an associated action plan as a basis for a sector-wide approach to energy. Shortages of energy, compounded by high prices, threaten to derail the country's Economic Development and Poverty Reduction Strategy both in the period up to 2012 and beyond to the Vision 2020 horizon. In order to meet the country’s development aspirations, a strong policy and institutional framework is needed to manage existing energy supplies and facilitate substantial investment in all forms of energy.
