The Rwandan government targets to extend clean water to 89 percent of residents in the fiscal year 2019-2020, up from the current 87.6 percent, an official said here on Thursday.
To achieve the target, the Rwandan ministry of infrastructure plans to increase daily water production capacity to 317,000 cubic meters up from the current 262,660 cubic meters, said Patricie Uwase, permanent secretary of the ministry of infrastructure, when appearing before the budget committee of the lower chamber of the parliament in the capital Kigali.
Uwase was explaining the execution of activities planned in the 2018-19 fiscal year budget and the action plan for the next financial year.
The ministry targets to reach water production capacity of about 365,000 cubic meters under the government’s seven-year program dubbed National Strategy for Transformation, according to Uwase.
Under the seven-year program which runs from 2017 to 2024, the Rwandan government aims to connect all Rwandans to clean water and electricity. Enditem
