Project General Description

The proposed Livestock Infrastructure Support Programme (LISP) is the Bank’s second sector budget support operation in Rwanda and will be implemented over four fiscal years, 2011 to 2015. It is the Bank’s response to a formal request of the GoR dated December 9 2009 for a quick disbursing fiscal stimulus ADF funds to support its efforts aimed at mitigating the adverse impact of the global financial and economic crisis and consolidate the gains made under the Dairy Cattle Development Support Project (PADEBL). Overall, the programme has 2 major components (i) Livestock Infrastructure Support Component and (ii) Food Security Enhancement and Capacity Building Component.

Project Objectives

The goal of the Programme is poverty reduction through increased value addition and marketing which will provide the necessary pull effect for private sector investment in the Livestock/Dairy industry. The purpose of the programme is to build the necessary infrastructure and services that will contribute to the development of a sustainable and profitable livestock and dairy industry in Rwanda.


The programme will be beneficial to the entire population of Rwanda, including private businesses and neighbouring countries’ livestock and livestock products consumers. The impact will be felt in terms of extended access to a more reliable livestock water supply and improved rural feeder road that will lead to reduced cost of marketing. Overall, the wellbeing and quality of life of all Rwandans will be improved and employment creation will be assured.
