Ongoing projects

Rwanda and Agenda 2030 - country reference framework

VLIR-UOS revised its country approach towards an ‘Agenda 2030 on Sustainable Development’ centred approach. Moreover, VLIR-UOS wants to facilitate connections between different actors and projects present in a given country. With these objectives in mind, the Country Reference Framework (CRF) for Rwanda supports teams of academics when identifying and formulating project proposals, by providing a context analysis focused on Agenda 2030 on Sustainable Development and the higher education sector in Rwanda, and by providing an overview of Belgian development actors active in Rwanda, their ongoing projects and partners, in view of exploration of opportunities for synergy and complementarity.

VLIR-UOS cooperation in Rwanda has been aligned with Rwanda’s long-term strategy Vision 2050 which indicates that the development of a knowledge intensive economy is a top priority and which foresees a key role for higher education and research. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have been mainstreamed into Vision 2050 as well as the National Strategy for Transformation. This is in line with the objectives of VLIR-UOS on working towards Agenda 2030.
