In Rwanda, SNV delivers advisory services to local organisations throughout the country, helping realise the national development goals in the agri-food, energy, and water sectors.

Our core business is strengthening the capacities of local organisations in the private and public sectors. In doing so, we can localise capacity development services and upscale our activities. Drawing on SNV's international network of qualified specialists, we apply market-based solutions to reducing poverty and promoting good governance.

Currently, SNV in Rwanda supports producer organisations, processors and agro-businesses in the coffee, honey and other bee products and dairy value chains to increase income and employment opportunities and contribute to food and nutrition security. We apply a value chain development approach, promoting market-based solutions to improve overall competitiveness and tap into opportunities while protecting the environment. We also strengthen the business service providers within the agriculture value chains.

In the energy sector, SNV is positioned as a strategic partner that can deliver innovative solutions and successful interventions with strong participation of the market and the development of the private sector. Our alliances with MININFRA, MYICT, and REG and close collaboration with the National authorities are bearing fruit towards the contribution to GoR plans and targets.

Access to water and sanitation is one of the priorities for the SDGs and the Rwanda Economic Development Poverty Reduction Strategy II. Though Rwanda made great progress and is internationally known for its clean streets, many people still do not have internationally recommended access to water and sanitation. SNV Rwanda's main focus is on the functionality and sustainability of the service provision.
