The Government of Rwanda (GoR), through the agency of the Ministry of Agriculture (MINAGRI) and the Rwanda Agricultural Development Authority (RADA), has responsibility for guiding rural development and prompting agricultural transformation that increases agricultural production and improves the lives of Rwanda’s rural poor. GoR, using a variety of policies, laws, plans, and regulations has also established frameworks for productive and equitable land rights, sustainable land use planning, productive but equitable land use, and efficient and unfettered transactions in land and other property that will promote investment. This implementation strategy: 1. Sets out the existing legal and policy framework that will structure GoR’s efforts to consolidate agricultural land use and to facilitate the creation of alternative joint farming models. 2. Based upon international best practices and the legal and policy framework, describes the principles and standards adopted by MINAGRI and RADA for use in program and projects design and implementation. 3. Describes the tasks that need to be undertaken next to move forward with a consolidation and related alternative model farming facilitation program.
