Rwanda state and drivers of change of Kigali's sanitation – a demand perspective (Rwanda)
This paper provides a view of the current state of the sanitary system in urban Kigali and focuses on the practices and perceptions on the demand side. The study is based on 30 qualitative interviews in households and a school staff discussion. Information was also supplemented with 34 citywide interviews, for example from the Ministry of Infrastructure, Kigali City Council, local governments, local health centers, Plan International, and UNICEF amongst others. Currently, many households are not very concerned about their sanitation, although particularly high population density areas are under pressure with the lack of proper sanitation facilities. Cleanliness and health are important to the inhabitants, but the sanitation situation is alarming in some areas. This paper examines the social and technical drivers of change in Kigali’s sanitation.
