Valuing Open and Inclusive Civic Engagement (VOICE) 2015-2020

Project Appraisal Document (PAD)

This Valuing Open and Inclusive Civic Engagement (VOICE) Project Appraisal Document (PAD) informs the design of mechanisms and activities supported by USAID/Rwanda intended to increase civic participation and consultation in governmental decision-making at all levels.

In line with the Government of Rwanda (GOR), USAID/Rwanda’s goal, as captured in its Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS), is to accelerate Rwanda’s progress to middle-income status and better quality of life through sustained growth and reduction of poverty. This goal is undermined, however, when the GOR restricts citizens’ input into policies affecting them, does not consistently respect the rule of law and human rights and limits public dialogue to the one-sided acceptance of official policies and narratives. This lack of substantive engagement with citizens coupled with a weak protection of civil rights and liberties will inevitably limit the sustainability of peace and development in Rwanda.
