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.

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 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.

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.
