Background:


The 7-year Government of Rwanda program coincides with the implementation of the remainder of the Economic Development and Poverty Reduction Strategy (EDPRS2, 2013-2018), Vision 2020, which ends in 2020, and will also cover the first four years of a new 30-year Vision for the period up to 2050.   The implementation instrument for the above is the National Strategy for Transformation (NST1). The NST1 also embraces the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Africa Union Agenda 2063 and its First 10-Year Implementation Plan (2014-2023) which is dedicated to the building of an integrated, prosperous, and peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens, and representing a dynamic force in the international arena; and the East African Community (EAC) Vision 2050, which focuses on initiatives for job creation and employment.
