Rwanda Building $5 billion Green City in 2020

Last year, the landlocked East African country started the construction of the Kigali Innovation City (KIC) which is a $2 billion project aimed at creating the continent’s Silicon Valley on 70 hectares of land that will host among others, world-class universities, technology companies, biotech firms, and commercial and retail real estate.

The country is yet again preparing to build a $5 billion model green city in Kigali from January 2020 which will sit on 620 hectares of land in Kinyinya Sector, Gasabo District complete with a system that prevents environmental degradation and air pollution.

With the financial support of the German Development Cooperation through the KfW Development Bank, the Rwanda Green Fund (Fonerwa) is undertaking a feasibility study and Sweco, a European engineering and architecture firm is supporting in the implementation, he added.
