Project General Description

The present intervention relates to the preparation of the Bugesera Integrated Rural Development Project (a PPF to Rwanda). It's initiated because of the need, in order to guarantee good quality for the project at entry, to prepare the final designs of the marshland development works and conduct a feasibility study on the development of the areas to be irrigated from cross-border lakes during the project preparation process. The studies should, during project appraisal, provide good cost estimates of the scheduled works. The marshland development studies should include an environmental and social impact assessment. More specifically, this intervention should ultimately allow: (i) preparing the final designs for the development of marshlands in the two countries and evaluating the cost of the works; (ii) conducting an evaluation of the economic rate of return of these developments, as well as an environmental and social impact assessment; (iii) proposing technical solutions for the development of lake water irrigation in the project area.

The sector goal of the project is to reduce poverty in Bugesera region. Its specific objective is to sustainably increase agricultural production and improve the living conditions of the populations in Bugesera region.
