MINISTRY OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT                                             DGG PROGRAMME

Po Box 3445 Kigali



  1. Introduction

In 2000, the Government of Rwanda adopted the National Decentralization Policy to address a number of the then existing challenges including highly centralized administration with unaccountable leadership, powerless, voiceless, disengaged, and socially vulnerable communities, high levels of inequality and divisionism within the society, low productivity and low level of local economic development. The National Decentralization Policy was implemented in a phased approach since 2001.

To assess the level of its implementation, the Ministry of local government commissioned various studies including “Assessment of the Impact of Decentralization Policy Implementation in Rwanda (2001-2017)”. The study findings revealed that more has been achieved, and provided new insights into the decentralization perspectives. However, there has been limited documentation of the decentralization journey in Rwanda.

In view of the above and with technical and financial support to the Ministry of Local Government (MINALOC) from the Decentralization and Good Governance Programme (DGG) of the Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), GOPA Worldwide Consultants is looking for a competent consultant or a firm of consultants to develop a documentary film on decentralization journey, success stories, challenges, and lessons learned for the future use.
