Wood Supply Chain in Rwanda: A Market Analysis

Export citation

Since 2001, the government of Rwanda has started several reforms to improve the forestry sector in the country, as the importance of the timber business and its contribution to national economy were neglected. This report, supported by the Promotion of Economy and Employment Programme (Eco-Emploi), a Rwandan-German Development Cooperation Programme with Technical Assistance by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), presents a qualitative and quantitative analysis of timber value chain in the country and provides some financial and economic modelling as to the future choices available to policy and decision makers, as well as technical partners such as GIZ.
