Since 1994, Rwanda has taken a steady path of recovery and development.  The Kigali conceptual master plan is a key element to move the nation forward.  The current Kigali population of 1 million is expected to double, possibly triple, within 25 years.  The master plan addresses this exponential growth, incorporating a wide range of ecological, social, and economically sustainable strategies.  From developing infrastructure to walkable neighborhood centers to urban agriculture, the plan responds to this transforming community’s needs, now and in the future.

I strongly recommend the Kigali Conceptual Master Plan as an exemplary master plan that truly addresses the vision and development needs of an emerging city such as Kigali.
