1.1.Introduction

Land is a finite constraint in Rwanda, and the mountainous topography of the country means that there are only 1.5 million Ha of available arable land. Agricultural land plots are very small (80% of land holdings are less than 1 Ha, often divided into three to four plots), and over 70% of agricultural land is either on hills or on the side of hills. Because about 80% of the population of Rwanda lives in rural areas and is engaged in agriculture to some extent, finding ways to increase agricultural productivity is the key to reducing poverty. The government of Rwanda (GoR) has therefore made agricultural development a priority and allocated significant resources to improving productivity, expanding the livestock sector, promoting sustainable land management, and developing supply chains and value-added activities.
