Future Agricultural and Economic Development

Current Rwanda

•HDI ranking of 166

•50% of population below poverty line

•Weak government, large debt, social issues

•Most densely populated African country

•90% of labor force engaged in subsistence farming

•Agriculture accounts for 35% of the country’s GDP and 45% of all exports

Our Plan:


•Using vertical farming we hope to increase Rwanda’s GDP

•We will focus on promoting Rwanda as a prime locus for telecommunications and infrastructure

•We will invest in railway systems to ultimately lower transportation costs

•Goals: decrease poverty and debt and ultimately attract investors in order to further develop this country
