Dear colleagues, 
We’re closing out a year that’s contained great challenges and victories - from COVID variants spreading rampantly to the negative outcomes of our climate crisis and economic and social upheavals.
Kigali, December 09, 2021- The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Rwanda and the Government of Belgium have signed a funding agreement worth 2 million Euros to expand the social and economic inclusion of youth, women, and persons with disabilities in Rwanda’s eight districts.

COVID-19 has triggered an unprecedented economic contraction in Rwanda. After a period of sustained growth averaging 7.8 percent over the last two decades, the economy is now estimated to have dropped to a growth rate of -3.4 percent in 2020 and unemployment surged to 22.1 percent in May of the same year. Although recovery has begun, many people find themselves coping with levels of poverty unseen in many years.
