The Economic Development and Poverty Reduction Strategy of Rwanda (EDPRS) sets out medium-term objectives and indicative financial allocations. Environment is identified as a key cross-cutting issue. In addition several sectors with a strong environmental and natural resource content have been identified as critical for achieving Rwanda's development objectives, given their links to productive (e.g. land) or to health (e.g. water supply and sanitation). The Environment, Land and Forestry sector has been allocated for the period 2008-2012 a total of RWF 62 billion (Rwandan francs), representing 1.8% of total public expenditure, while its share of total capital expenditure amount to 3.8%. In turn, the Water and Sanitation sector has been allocated a total of RWF 146 billion, representing 4.2% of total expenditure, with the share of capital expenditure amounting to 5.5%.
