“Our Environment Our Future”

Rwanda has made development of its ICT sector a national priority as a key element of its Vision 2020, and seeks to foster economic growth while combating challenges of environmental degradation attributed to a growing population. The government maintains that ICT applications and services are essential for ensuring sustainable economic development, and that good governance includes efficiency in deploying scarce resources and empowering communities through improved access to information and services.

To this end, the country has developed a land administration information system as part of its National ICT Policy and Action Plan 2011–2015. The aim of the project is to substantially reduce cases of competing property ownership claims, the cost of land registration and time taken to produce title deeds. A mining portal has also been implemented and the country is embarking on a number of “Green ICT” initiatives to reduce electronic waste, and enable efficient energy generation, consumption and distribution. Public awareness of the importance of environmental protection and sustainable development are promoted through the website of the government’s environmental management authority and other media.
