In Rwanda, SNV delivers advisory services to local organisations throughout the country, helping to realise the national development goals in the Agriculture, Energy and Water, Sanitation & Hygiene 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 in order to increase income and employment opportunities and as such contribute to food and nutrition security. We apply value chain development approach, promoting market-based solutions to increase 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 who can deliver innovative solutions and successful interventions with strong participation of the market and the development of private sector. Our alliances with MININFRA, MYICT, and REG as well as 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 both the MDGs 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 the internationally recommended access to water and santiation. SNV Rwanda's main focus is on functionality and sustainability of the service provision.
