Rwanda—Technical Assistance to Support the National Agricultural Export Development Board’s Capacity in Monitoring the Implementation of Projects and in the ‘Feeding the Cities’ Programme

Client: European Union

Duration: 2020-2023

Region: Sub-Saharan Africa

Country: Rwanda

Solutions: Economic Growth

Rwanda’s agriculture is predominantly composed of smallholder farmers who are the main contributors to the food basket of the country. With more than 70 percent farming community counted as smallholders, the country and its development partners have embarked on a larger programme to professionalise farming and support farmers to get maximum out of small land cultivated through improved productivity. This modernisation is coupled with supporting market linkages both locally and internationally.

In this context, the European Union (EU) supports the Government of Rwanda in its efforts to modernise agriculture through a number of projects and funding models. DAI’s technical assistance team provides project monitoring and management support to the National Agricultural Export Development Board.
