Expression of Interest (EOI)

Construction of composting latrines and renovation of tourists’ ancillary service shops along the Congo Nile Trail 


The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is a federally owned international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development with worldwide operations. GIZ has worked in Rwanda for over 30 years. The primary objectives between the Government of Rwanda and the Federal Republic of Germany are poverty reduction and promotion of sustainable development. To achieve these objectives, GIZ Rwanda is active in the sectors of Decentralization and Good Governance, Economic Development and Employment Promotion, Energy and ICT (Information and Communications Technology).

General Context

The bilateral Promotion of Economy and Employment Program (Eco-Emploi) is part of the priority area “Sustainable Economic Development” of the Rwandan-German Development Cooperation and is implemented by GIZ between January 2020 and December 2022. The program contributes to private sector development, youth employment, vocational training and an active labour market policy. It works towards achieving SDG 1 “No poverty”, SDG 4 “High-quality education”, SDG 5 “Gender equality” and SDG 8 “Decent work and economic growth”. The program also aims at employment-intensive growth in selected value chains namely timber, tourism and film industry with focus on increasing the market orientation and competitiveness of MSMEs and improving the interaction of different value creation stages in the above specified value chains. The economic empowerment of women, youth and people with disabilities are a crosscutting effort in all activities of the programme.

Rationale of this assignment 

Hiking and biking tourism have grown exponentially worldwide over the past years and are perceived by most travelers as the most appealing ways to experience adventure while contributing to better health and supporting the economic growth of the host destinations.

Against this backdrop, Rwanda has over the last years invested in the development of hiking and biking trails to offer more opportunities for travelers seeking to experience the beauty of the country and get immersed with the local culture. The Congo Nile Trail (CNT) is the longest trail and was developed in western part of Rwanda, along the shores of lake Kivu and through different community plantations, homes and villages. The CNT connects 5 districts of the Western province of Rwanda namely Rubavu, Rutsiro, Karongi, Nyamasheke and Rusizi. The Trail is used for both hiking and biking.

The development and sustainability of the Congo Nile Trail has called along the process for a more participatory approach between the public sector and the private sector to promote the destination, contribute to community development and offer benefits for all the local stakeholders. To ensure maximum satisfaction to the tourists visiting the CNT and maximize the tourism benefits to the local stakeholders, there are several expected requirements in terms of quality guiding services, accommodations, transport, infrastructure and many other ancillary services like refreshments, restrooms that visitors do not find easily during their visit.

This gap in tourism service delivery has been revealed by different users of the Congo Nile Trail, including tourists and tour guides as well as different experts. Such extra services do not only contribute to the satisfaction of the visitors of the Congo Nile Trail but also economically contribute to the welfare of the local communities through additional income generation opportunities.

In this context, Eco-Emploi program, in collaboration with RDB, the Kivu Belt DMU and the local government, would like to assist the infrastructure improvements for currently identified tourists’ ancillary service shops owned by the community along the Congo Nile Trail. This will involve the construction of eleven wooden composting latrines and renovation of eleven tourists’ ancillary service shops along the Congo Nile Trail. This will be done in parallel with the capacity building for those service providers along the trails. The current efforts intend to fulfil different aspects that will lead to the certification of the Congo Nile Trail.

Please note: This is a brief overview of the scope of work. More details will be included in the Bill of Quantities (BoQ) and execution drawing plan that will be provided to contractors whowill participate in the site visit. GIZ Rwanda will not enter into detailed discussion of the requirements at this stage.
