ENERGY, WATER & SANITATION

Energy

RURA’s mandate in the energy sector is to control and regulate an efficient, sustainable and reliable energy sector in a transparent and fair manner for the benefit of all stakeholders. As per the revised law N0 09/2013 of 01/03/2013 establishing RURA, the Authority is mandated to regulate renewable and non-renewable energy, industrial gases, pipelines and storage facilities among other public regulated utilities.

Water and Sanitation

Access to safe drinking water and improved sanitation is a fundamental human right approved by the United Nations and well reflected in the National water and sanitation policy and strategy for Rwanda. This is mainly because the quality of drinking water and sanitation services has a direct impact on public health and both are key components of social and economic development.

The primary objective of the water and sanitation sector is to ensure sustainable and affordable access to safe drinking water and sanitation services to all and this is well stated in various national policies such as the EDPRS and the vision 2020. Rwanda was recently ranked among countries that are on a good track towards the achievement of millennium targets (MDG) in the water and sanitation sector
