This MSc research concerns sanitation policy and practice in Rwanda, with specific focus on unplanned areas in Kigali. This study was driven by the concern that the current pace towards achieving the sanitation related Millennium Development Goals in Rwanda falls far behind that needed. The research strived to assess the priority given towards sanitation in Rwanda, with an inclination to the possibility of introducing ecological sanitation (Ecosan) technology as an alternative sanitation practice in unplanned areas of Kigali.
With this study we hope to contribute to an acceleration of improvement of sanitation in Rwanda by identifying the current hindrances and barriers to achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) within a reasonable amount of time.
