Sustainable Transport

As a developing country, Rwanda faces particular transport challenges impacting economic and social accessibility.

These include:

  • High-density urban areas, contributing to congestion and emissions (7% increase per annum) with growing private vehicle use;
  • High costs of transport (fuel), impacting commuter mobility and the costs of doing business;
  • Mountainous terrain, necessitating complex infrastructure to transverse and ensure resilience against extreme weather events; and
  • Land-locked geography, creating dependence on reliable connectivity with neighbours.
