"Based on its long experience fighting water problems, the Netherlands can mobilize knowledge institutions, firms, and individuals who will work closely with Rwandan stakeholders in the ministries of Natural Resources, Agriculture, and Infrastructure but also at district level and private firms," she said.

She pointed out that integrated water resource management program is a relatively new concept that needs all stake holders to work together to be able to achieve best results.
