Rwanda’s “Vision 2020”, the country’s overarching national planning and policy framework to which other Government of Rwanda (GoR) strategies, plans, programmes and policies are anchored, recognizes that unsustainable environment and natural resources (ENR) management makes it more challenging to achieve development objectives such as poverty reduction. This is because unsustainable ENR use reduces the stream of economic and social benefits they produce, e.g. Soil erosion reduces agricultural productivity and makes it harder to achieve food security and reduce rural poverty levels. Thus, ENR and development issues need to be addressed in a co-ordinated manner. The document states clearly that Rwanda will endeavour to “mainstream the environmental sustainability issues in all development policies, programmes and actions to realise equitable and sustainable development. As part of the road towards realising the Vision 2020, environmental sustainability has been given priority both as a specific a sub-sector and as a crosscutting issue in national medium term strategies like the EDPRS II, as well as other national, sector and sub national planning processes.The integration of pro-poor ENR sustainability objectives into national planning at all levels serves as a critical input to both sustainability and national poverty reduction initiatives. This is fully recognized by the Government of Rwanda, which through the support of the Poverty and Environment Initiative Program (PEI), led by REMA in close collaboration with MINECOFIN and other ministries has been very active in influencing the sectors to mainstream ENR sustainability and climate change adaptation in sector plans, budgets and policies. The Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning (MINECOFIN) has been spearheading the exercise through the Sector Strategic Planning guidelines/checklists and the Budget Call Circulars where all budget agencies are required to mainstream environment and climate change.Subsequently, drawing lessons from the recent initiatives, the process to mainstream ENR and climate change issues into the next generation of the EDPRS and other plans and strategies is underway. However, the main issue at hand is how the national, sector and sub national policies that include ENR and climate change can be designed and implemented to reach and sustainably transform the lives of the poorest people at the community level. This requires that policy objectives are translated into practical, tangible actions on the ground that sectors and sub-national entities like agriculture, local Governments and community actors use to further mainstream ENR sustainability and achieve economic and social development goals. It is against this background that REMA decided on a pilot demonstration of an integrated ENR management program named Rubaya Green Village in Rubaya sector, Gicumbi district. The main purpose of this initiative was to practically demonstrate how poverty problems related to environment and natural resources management (land use, agriculture, human settlements, health and education) can be addressed through participatory integrated approaches to generate sustainable livelihoods, fight poverty and transform rural economies in an environmentally sustainable manner. More specifically, it aims to show how investments in environmental sustainability can help achieve development goals such as poverty reduction, food security, social cohesion and the empowerment of women.To address the above mentioned problems REMA supported this initiative which includes a number of inter-linked components. These mainly include:Provision of water reservoirs to control run-off and ensure that it is productively utilized;Control of soil erosion to reduce the loss of fertile top soil and retain much of the water through terracing. The national “one cow per family” initiative, or Girinka, has become a communal rather than individual project.Common collection centre for waste from the cows and also human waste which is used to generate biogas that is distributed to all the houses for cooking and lighting. The residue is then used as manure in the terraces.Rain water from all the rooftops is collected into 7 underground tanks of 100 cm3 each from where it is piped to different taps in the village (Umudugudu).Similar demonstration / green village pilots have been established, amongst them a similar model village supported by REMA / PEI in Muyebe, Muhanga Disitrict. There is also a national programme with the aim of establishing 30 Green Villages (in all Districts), and other Green Villages are funded by FONERWA, Red Cross, etc. A “Toolkit on the Development of Smart Green Villages” was also produced by PEI / REMA in 2015, outlining practical steps to establish and maintain these Green Villages.To ensure effective replication and scale up of the best practices and the lessons learnt from the Rubaya demonstration project and to effectively support the on-going EDPRS II and Green Growth processes, REMA/PEI wants to ascertain the costs and benefits of this pilot demonstration project, as one of the important elements to inform the efforts of scaling up Green Villages in Rwanda.A consultancy work with similar TORS was undertaken in 2015 by a team of an International and national consultant. Unfortunately, despite many rounds of review, the result was not satisfactory and the consultancy was discontinued after receiving a third draft.In order to complete this important exercise, using the incomplete Draft of previous consultants, underlying data and earlier comments, REMA and PEI are seeking a new consultant to complete this assignment and submit a quality and relevant product, which can inform the future of the Green village programme.The main purpose of these TORs is to complete and finalize the assessment of the net economic, social and environment benefits of the Rubaya Green Village demonstration project and secondly to use the results to estimate the benefits of project replication. This will be conducted using already available information (previous consultants’ report and raw data) and newly sourced data to come up with a report consistent with standard and accepted Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) methodologies that will guide the future green village demonstration initiatives and their scaling up.REMA realises that identification of the net benefits plus effective documentation of lessons and good practices learnt in the Rubaya demonstration project will be critical to effective replication of the project by Local Government but more importantly to mobilise more resources for poverty reduction. This replication could play a key role in achieving a number of EDPRS objectives and MDGs, particularly those relating to poverty reduction, food security, and environmental sustainability and economic and empowerment of women.Application procedureTechnical proposal Duly accomplished Letter of Confirmation of Interest and Availability using the template provided by UNDP;Personal CV or P11, indicating all past experience in the field of UN Operations/Program and meeting facilitation, as well as the contact details (email and telephone number) of the Candidate and at least three (3) professional references;Brief description of why the individual considers him/herself as the most suitable for the assignment, and a methodology, on how they will approach and complete the assignment;2.

Rwanda’s has achieved a sustained economic growth over the past 5 year at a rapid rate of 8%. Mining is an important subsector that contributed close to 2 percent to Rwanda’s Gross Domestic Product in the 2013-2014 fiscal years mainly from mineral exports and providing over 40,000 jobs. The subsector plans to increase its contribution to GDP and the number of jobs each by at least 15%.In 2004, the Government of Rwanda realizing the growing macro-economic impact of mining on the socio-economic development of the country, decided to develop the first comprehensive Mining Policy of 2004 which was later reviewed in 2009 to give the existing Mining Policy of January 2010. This Policy sets out 5 Strategic Outcomes (Pillars) for the sector: 1. Strengthen the enabling legal, regulatory and institutional environment; 2. Develop targeted investment, fiscal and macro-economic policies; 3. Improve mining sector knowledge, skills and use of best practices; 4. Raise productivity and establish new mines 5. Diversify into new products and increase value addition.In 2011 the Government of Rwanda adopted the national Green Growth and Climate Resilience Strategy (GGCRS). The GGCRS articulates 14 Programmes of Action for its mainstreaming among all sectors of the national economy in order to orient its rapidly growing economy towards principles and practices of resource efficiency, maintaining a low-carbon production growth path and climate resilience. One of the Programmes of Action aimed at achieving a green and climate resilient mining sector for the long term in RwandaDrawing from the GGCRS, the second phase of Rwanda’s Economic Development and Poverty Reduction Strategy (EDPRS 2) that runs from 2013 to 2018 also set medium term priorities for pursuing a green mining industry that include the establishment of a model mine as one of the key interventions.A new “Mining and Minerals Policy of Rwanda” has been drafted in 2015 by the Department of Mines and Geology, which aims at adjusting the policy to the changes in institutional framework, developments in modern mining practices, greater focus on environmental management, and update of mining and mineral statistics. It focuses on the development of a policy framework that will enable Rwanda to manage its limited mineral resources for the sustainable socio-economic development of the Rwandan community. The Objective of this new proposed policy is: To ensure Rwanda’s mining sector operations are managed efficiently in an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable framework within the internationally accepted standards of occupational health, mine safety and environmental protection. It describes goals and actions in the following thematic areas: Legal and regulatory framework fiscal and revenue management; Geological, topographic and mineral information system; Artisanal and small-scale mining operations; Investment, productivity, diversification and linkages; Environmental management of social impacts of miningMost activities involving the use of natural resources have potential negative environmental, economic and social impacts. Mining is no exception and to ensure that mining makes the largest, sustained positive contribution to the achievement of Rwanda development objectives, it is necessary to minimize negative environmental, social and economic impacts. In other countries, pollution, negative impacts on the well-being of people living close to mines, including women, have decreased the net positive economic contribution of mining to national economies and resulted in opposition in some quarters to mining. The overarching objective of this proposed undertaking is to draft a Strategic Environment Assessment (SEA) that focuses on the new Draft “Mining and Minerals Policy”, and will ensure mining’s contribution to Rwanda’s development maximizes net social and economic benefits, including gender elements.1.Regulatory and Institutional ContextPrinciple 1 of Article 7 in Organic Law 04/2005 provides a legal framework for Strategic Environmental Assessments (SEAs) as precautionary measures that ensure environmental sustainability of policies, strategies and plans. In order to effectively mainstream resource efficiency, low-carbon growth and climate resiliency in Rwanda’s mining operations as stipulated in the GGCRS and EDPRS 2, it is essential that environmental, social and economic impacts of mining operations be established and an SEA be undertaken at policy, plan and strategy levels. The Study will therefore be carried out according to the country’s guidelines for Strategic Environmental Assessment and will assess the new Mining and Minerals Policy, with a final SEA report approved by the Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA).The Rwanda Natural Resources Authority (RNRA) as a technical institution of the Ministry of Natural Resources is mandated with developing a sustainable mining industry that is resource efficient, low-carbon, climate resilient and that provides decent employment.It is in this regard that RNRA seeks services of a consultancy firm to conduct a SEA for the mining sector in Rwanda to assess and guide the on-going development of the new Mining and Minerals Policy. Special focus should be given to the Poverty – Environment interactions, as well as gender aspects of the mining sector and its future strategies and plans. This is to ensure, inter alia, that the net positive economic contribution of mining to achievement of Rwanda’s development goals is higher by avoiding or minimizing potential negative environmental, social and economic impacts.2.Key policy and other documents:The Constitution of the Republic of Rwanda, Republic of Rwanda, 2003Rwanda Vision 2020, Republic of Rwanda 2000.Green Growth and Climate Resilience Strategy, 2011General Guidelines and Procedures for Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA), REMA, 2011.General Guidelines and Procedures for Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), REMA, 2006.Mining Policy, Republic of Rwanda, 2010.Organic Law N° 04/2005 of 08/04/2005 determining the modalities of protection, conservation and promotion of environment in Rwanda, Republic of Rwanda 2005.Economic Development and Poverty Reduction Strategy II (2013-2018)Mining Sub-sector Strategic Plan 2014-2019, Rwanda Natural Resource Authority.Environmental, Social and Economic Dimensions to Consider in the Development of the Mining Industry in Rwanda, 2014.Mining Law (2015)Rwanda State of Environment and Outlook Report 2015.
