The Government of Rwanda’s Economic Development and Poverty Reduction Strategies (EDPRS 2) sets out four thematic areas to address specific economic transformation objectives for the period of 2013-2017. These areas include (i) Economic transformation for higher growth, (ii) rural development, (iii) Productivity and Youth employment and (iv) Accountable governance.
The United Nations in Rwanda has aligned its support for EDPRS 2 through the UNDAP (United Nations Development Assistance Programme). The UNDAP (2013-2018) is framed around three key Results areas that are quite similar to those of EDPRS 2: (i) Economic transformation, (ii) accountable governance and (iii) Human development.
For the implementation of the UNDAP, UN agencies in Rwanda have devised a division of labour and UNDP country Office was given a big chunk of support for sustainable economic development. This support channels mostly through development projects executed by national counterparts.
Cognizant of the challenges identified during the implementation of EDPRS 1, including but not limited to:
The UNDP Rwanda Country Office and the GoR through the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning (MINECOFIN) have prepared and signed a new five year project (2014-2018) titled ‘’Support for Effective Development Cooperation for Result’’.
This new project has two main objectives:
This project came from a merger of 3 former UNDP/ GoR separate projects: (a) Supporting Harmonization, Alignment, and Coordination for Aid Effectiveness in Rwanda (b) Strengthening Government of Rwanda’s National Evidence-Based Policy Planning, Analysis and M&E Project and (c) Support to Special Activities through Evidence-Based Policy Research and Advocacy in support of MDG Initiatives in Rwanda.
The merger has been thought to be the most effective and efficient implementation strategy for programmes falling under similar results areas and implemented by the same institution, MINECOFIN, which will help avoid unnecessary duplication, and reduce transaction costs.
The project’s four outputs are jointly implemented by MINECOFIN and UNDP in the following way:
