Rwanda's Districts to Construct Model Urban Community Settlements

By Steven Muvunyi

All thirty districts of the country will have an urban community settlement, commonly known as 'model village,' by the end of the next financial year.

The project will be implemented under the rural settlement policy, requiring residents living in rural areas to live in well planned settlements.

The Integrated Development Programme (IDP model village) was initiated in 2010 to promote proper human settlement in rural areas.
