This report shows the results of a nationwide risk assessment aimed to develop a comprehensive disaster risk profile for Rwanda. It covers five major natural hazards prevailing in Rwanda namely; droughts, floods, landslides, earthquakes and windstorms. The elements at risk considered in the assessment are: population, agriculture, health, education, housing (building) and transportation (roads). The risk profile is analyzed and presented at national and local scale i.e. district level.

This report was co-financed by the EU-funded ACP-EU Natural Disaster Risk Reduction Program managed by the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR). Financial and technical support including capacity building was provided by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
