10:00:17 1. GENERAL VIEWS 00:04:27
10:00:17 Title Rwanda is a land locked country situated in the 'Great Lakes' region of Central Africa. Known as 'Le Pays des Milles Collines' (Land of a Thousand Hills), it is home to over 10 million people and is often associated with the horrific events that took place in 1994. It can be remembered as one of the most savage genocides in history and what happened is difficult to believe, however the country has started to take steps towards recovery. Rwanda is striving to rebuild its economy, with coffee and tea production being among its main sources of foreign exchange. However, nearly two thirds of the population still live below the poverty line. 00:00:04

10:04:44 Title The Mpazi ravine restoration project is located between the area of Kigali called Nyarugenge and Mount Kigali. Unplanned settlements on both slopes of the ravine eliminated natural vegetation and increased the volume of surface water and led to erosion of the ravine bed. The restoration of the Mpazi ravine was carried out between 2007-2008 on a section 5 km in length and at a cost of 5.8 million euro. Before rehabilitation, the ravine was 4 to 15 metres in depth and 3 to 20 metres wide, there were numerous accidental deaths and many houses were destroyed by collapsing river banks. The EU financed the restoration project and pursued the double goal of the prevention of further degradation of the area and facilitating the socio-economic reintegration of demobilised combatants and other vulnerable individuals. In addition, a number of the paved roads in the area have been modernised. 00:00:04

10:06:40 Exterior of the PEPAPS (Southern Province Drinking Water and Sanitation Project) office in Huye district This safe water and sanitation programme partly financed by the European Union helps to develop a sustainable local water supply in the Gisagara, Huye and Nyaruguru districts of the Southern Province of Rwanda. The expansion of a safe water supply infrastructure is achieved through the rehabilitation of existing pipe networks and the construction of new ones. Over 700 km of pipes using a gravitational system will provide at least 1 water tap every 500 metres. The project also develops sanitation infrastructure through the construction of school latrines. 00:00:05

10:09:38 3. AGRICULTURE 00:04:16
10:09:38 Title Rwanda has to cope with rapid soil erosion due to overgrazing or unsuitable cultivation. Nationally 40% of land in Rwanda is at risk of erosion. Bench terraces are considered to be the best way to reduce soil erosion and increase agricultural production. Over the last 10 years, a number of bench terracing projects using labour intensive works have been implemented and funded by different donors including the EU. 00:00:04

10:11:53 Mid shot coffee plant flowering Coffee is a very important cash crop for Rwanda. The aim of EU support is to help re-launch cash crop agriculture after the 1994 genocide which reduced exports and decreased land use. An improvement in the quality of coffee will lead to a better share of profits between producers cooperatives and exporters. 00:00:04

10:13:54 Title The Multi-country Demobilisation and Reintegration Programme (MRDP) is an effort that supports the demobilisation and reintegration of ex-combatants in the Great Lakes region of Central Africa. The Rwanda Demobilisation and Reintegration Commission (RDRC) is part of this wider programme and is responsible for the demobilisation and reintegration of all existing ex-combatants, irrespective of their different origins. Situated in the northern province of Rwanda, the Mutobo demobilisation centre aims to ensure all that ex-combatants go through a verification and registration exercise on arrival before receiving ten weeks of basic skills training in agriculture, health, as well as reading and writing. They are also given courses on topics such as national security, conflict resolution and the fight against corruption. Currently 240 ex-combatants from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) armed groups are being trained at Mutobo. 00:00:04
