is innovative in its approach, exclusively working hand in hand with
staff, aiming at building capacities that will enhance and bring new
developments in water supply in Rwanda. EU fully recognizes that there
no sustainable development without access to safe water said Michel

Finally, the project aims at reducing technical losses
in the 3, 000 km of EWSA managed water network distribution networks by
than 15% by the end of the project identification of irregularities,
and vulnerabilities will be the basis for the development of a modern
for reduction of water losses, which again will greatly benefit the end
