Africa: Rwanda Seeks Firm to Develop Drainage System for Capital City

Project: Drainage system

Location: Kigali City

Summary: The government of Rwanda plans to develop a modern drainage system for the capital city, Kigali, and is inviting proposals from interested companies. The drainage system in Kigali has a total distance of 102,800 km, which comprises of 96,193km that is not constructed, and the remaining needs upgrading. Currently, the city has a degree of storm water and flood control infrastructure. The city is built on a hill with steep terrain, which aggravates erosion. Consequently, there are high rates of accidents as well as destruction of property since the drainage system is inadequate. The city's objective is to have a well-constructed and maintained system that would ensure the safety of dwellers and property.

Cost of project: The cost will depend on the outcome of a preliminary study that would be carried out jointly by the City of Kigali and an investor.
