The project "Transformation towards sustainable food systems - Kwihaza" is an integral part of the Team Europe Initiative (TEI) "Feeding the Cities" within the framework of the annual action plan of the European Union Delegation (EUD) in Rwanda.

The overall objective is to contribute to the transition towards social and environmental food systems and the development of value chains in the fields of aquaculture, fisheries and horticulture.

Its specific objective is to sustainably increase production, per capita consumption and income from quality fisheries, aquaculture and horticulture products, with particular attention to women and youth. In order to achieve this specific objective, the expected results are:

  • strengthening the capacities of smallholders active in these value chains to effectively improve product quality and quantity, reduce post-harvest losses and increase their access to local and regional markets;
  • strengthening small and medium-sized enterprises and youth entrepreneurs active at different levels of the targeted value chains to work in an inclusive and sustainable manner, create decent jobs and contribute to better food systems; and
  • strengthening an enabling environment for the development of inclusive value chains and sustainable food systems.

The project will be implemented in ten districts in Rwanda and will serve small producers, small and medium enterprises and consumers.

The project developed and implemented by Enabel over four years for a total budget of 15.5 MEUR is financed by the EUD for 10 MEUR and by Luxembourg for 5.5 MEUR. The contribution of the Luxembourg Cooperation is made available to Enabel through LuxDev, which is part of the monitoring committee and the steering committee.
