Rwanda’s overall development objectives and planning tools are driven by the Vision 2020, Economic Development and Poverty Reduction Strategy (EDPRS, 2008 – 2012), the Government’s seven years program, MDGs. The EDPRS 2 which runs from 2012/13- 2017/18 has set very ambitious targets for the water supply and sanitation sector, aiming to reach 100% coverage rate by 2017. The present strategic plan for the water supply and sanitation sector is a revision of the previous one (approved in 2010) that was implemented for only one and half years. The revision of the water and sanitation (Watsan) strategic plan was necessary to ensure that the sector strategy is aligned to the new objectives, targets, guidelines and thrust of Rwanda’s second EDPRS 2013/4 -2017/8. The current Watsan Strategic Plan remain a dynamic document during the next five years and is expected to take into account the results of the 2012 census of Rwanda in adjusting demand for water by district and water production levels required for the next twenty-five years in Rwanda.
