UNDAF Result on Governance


Summary of Significant National Achievements

 Good or democratic governance is both a means and an end. It is a means to achieve the goals of human development, the main elements of which are articulated through the set of MDGs. The Government of Rwanda continues to demonstrate strong leadership in advancing and consolidating its governance achievements, processes and institutions.


In a bid to achieve an equitable and inclusive development, the Government of Rwanda embarked on advancing further the gender equality agenda in 2010. Efforts were made to enhance the functioning of institutional mechanisms created by the government (such as the Ministry in charge of Gender and Family Promotion, the National Women’s Council, the Gender Monitoring Office, the One Stop Center, etc.) in order to ensure that commitments taken to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment were implemented and monitored. The country maintained the momentum in the protection of women’s human rights through its comprehensive and holistic gender based violence (GBV) prevention and response strategy and also through using legislation to end violence against women and girls.


Notably and in accordance with provisions of the Constitution of Rwanda, the second national presidential elections were held in a free, fair and peaceful environment in August 2010 with an overwhelming majority vote resulting in a second term for His Excellency Paul Kagame. The 2010 Presidential Election in Rwanda was significant because it represented the second transfer of power from one civilian government to another since 1994. Indeed, of equal importance was the impact of the outcome of the elections on the Great Lakes Region in support of electoral and democratic consolidation.
