Rwanda endeavors to manage and develop its water resources in an integrated and sustainable manner, so as to secure and provide water of adequate quantity and quality for all social and economic needs.

To enable evidence based decision making, the Rwanda Water and Forestry Authority (RWFA) generates concise, easily understood annual overviews of key parameters and locations which are indicative of the overall state of Rwanda’s water resources.

  • Surface water quantity

  • Ground water quantity

  • Water quality

  • Water use

The information is based on data collected through our monitoring programme which is designed to provide stakeholders and decision-makers with information to support the sustainable development and management of our water resources, improve water productivity and to plan for the future conditions resulting from climate change.
