The goal of the LISP is the creation of an enabling environment that will stimulate the development of a modern livestock industry in Rwanda through value addition and access to markets. The specific objective of the Programme is to build the necessary infrastructure and services that will contribute to the development of a sustainable and profitable livestock production and marketing and overall improvement of the livestock industry in Rwanda. The overall objectives of the study are (i) to assess water requirements of the livestock farms, carry out relevant technical investigations and studies (comprising of but not limited to hydrological, hydro-geological and hydraulic studies, topographical surveys, geotechnical investigations, socio-economic assessment), and prepare detailed engineering designs for the 72 LWS and tender documents to facilitate the construction of civil and hydraulic structures and (ii) to propose a management system for operation and maintenance for the 72 LWS that would reduce the burden on the government and lead to ownership of the facilities by farmers for sustainability. Detailed Terms of references (TOR) of the study has been prepared to be used by the selected consultant. The study would produce (i) reports on water requirements for the livestock of the Gishwati and Umutara milk basins, water resources available and proposal for developing the water supply for livestock farmers; (ii) preliminary and detailed engineering design reports of the 72 LWS and tender documents for the civil works; (iii) a proposal for a management system for the 72 LWS that would make the livestock farmers take ownership of their operation and maintenance for sustainability, and (iv) an environmental and social impact assessment report of the 72 LWS.
