The Rwanda Smart City Edition of ii2030 is set to address some of the critical challenges Rwandan cities are facing in the context of climate change, digital transformation, resource scarcity, rising social inequalities and urbanization. Over the past few years, Rwanda has made strides in the smart city agenda, emerging as a regional leader. Endeva’s ii2030 process intends to catalyze the use of technology for the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals. To this effect this ii2030 edition has three tracks. 


For the Rwanda Smart City Edition of ii2030, Endeva e.V. is organizing and implementing three tracks

How do we get there

Preparation /Inception phase

Early January to end of February 

During the inception phase, the Endeva team explores in bilateral interviews with the most important stakeholders like Rwandan ministries, GIZ, large companies and start-ups which concrete topics are most relevant, impactful and represent actionable systems to work with. 

Consultation phase

Early February to mid-April

Endeva conducts a series of virtual workshops with a broad range of stakeholders across all three tracks. The result is an understanding of the system and critical levers to change the way a system works. 

Co-creation phase

Mid-April to end of June

This ideation workshop series is open to a carefully selected group of participants who would be willing and able to implement the solution that comes out of the co-creation process.
