The Rwanda ExperienceUrban Infrastructure and City Management Tools
Since 2006, the International Development Association (IDA) support has enabled the Rwandan cities of Kigali, Huye and Musanze to improve service provision to their citizens. For example, in Kigali and Huye, 535,580 people have gained access to paved roads. In Musanze, 70,258 people have gained access to an improved health center, school and multipurpose hall facilities. By 2009, 15-27 percent of municipal budgets were allocated to infrastructure and facilities maintenance, from a baseline in 2006 of 2.5 percent in Kigali City, 2 percent in Huye district and 7 percent in Musanze district. This increase demonstrates the improved ability of these cities to continue to deliver and maintain services to their inhabitants.
