  • Rwanda authorizes Rusumo Falls hydropower project loan agreements

    Rusumo Falls Flag Map

    The Rwandan Senate has passed a law authorizing the ratification of loan and grant agreements for the construction of the 80-MW Rusumo Falls hydropower project.

    The legislation means the Republic of Rwanda will now benefit from a loan of about US$55.9 million from the International Development Association, which will be used to build both the plant and transmission lines extending to Rwanda, Burundi and Tanzania.

    HydroWorld.com reported in August that the run-of-river project had received $340 million from the World Bank.

    World Bank statistics show only 4% of Burundi's population has access to electricity, while Rwanda and Tanzania are listed at 13% and 15%, respectively.
