A New Urban Portrait for Kigali, Rwanda
World Architecture News writes:
"Rwanda's leadership has adopted urban planning as a key strategy to stimulate economic growth, heal social tensions and preserve the natural environment, as it transforms from a subsistence agrarian economy to a human resource based economy."
"The plans reflect integration of the natural environment with transect / terrain based planning, and concentrated development, as well as principles for establishing urban agriculture, sustainable transportation and infrastructure systems."
Kigali's Master Plan integrates the necessary sustainable and locally-based framework for developing cities, with the necessary tools and practices for Rwandan citizens to actively work towards a stronger, brighter future.
