SUPPORT TO THE RWANDA MINING BOARD IN REVISING THE MINING POLICY AND STRATEGY

Rwanda, like most mineral-exporting countries in sub-Saharan Africa, exportsminerals in semi-processed concentrate form. Although contributing 11 percent of foreign exchange, mining activities have existed as an enclave,disconnected from the wider economy.However, a number of recent sectoral governance reforms signal theRwandan government’s intent to optimize economic benefits from miningactivities. This project aims to support these efforts by, first, providing peerreview of draft strategic plans, and second, by exploring the potential for localbeneficiation of non-metallic industrial minerals from the perspective of thesize and trend of demand and the potential for attracting foreign directinvestment into processing. The project proposes implementation strategies, merging inter-governmentalresources coherently towards a common goal of achieving mineral-ledindustrialization. This project will also produce an exposition on the marketpotential for Rwanda’s industrial mineral endowments, as well as Rwanda’spotential as a destination for foreign direct investment into mineral processing.
