Goal and Objectives of RDRP Stage III

The overarching goal of the RDRP Stage III is to contribute to consolidate peace and stability in the Great Lakes Region (especially in Rwanda and DRC) through the completion of the DDR process for the remaining Rwandan Armed Groups and the further reduction in size of the Rwandan Defence Forces.

Four main objectives will be achieved through this intervention. These are

  • Maintain capacity required for repatriation, demobilisation, reinsertion and reintegration of an estimated 5,500 members of Armed Groups and of up to 10,000 of their dependents.
  • Maintain capacity required for demobilisation, reinsertion and reintegration of up to 4,000 members of the RDF.
  • Maintain capacity required for completion of reintegration activities for Ex-combatants demobilized late in 2008.
  • XCs access services at the national and local level

To ensure effectiveness and efficiency in attainment of the above objectives, the management and implementation mechanisms for the proposed programme will be reviewed to match to the remaining workload, while allowing for a process of systematic integration into mainstream planning and support within the Economic Development and Poverty Reduction Strategy (EDPRS) framework.
