Local Area Development Plan (LADP)
The Local Area Development Plan (LADP) is a 15.5 Million US Dollars benefit-sharing program designed to enhance regional economic and social development in Rusumo area Rwanda, Burundi and Tanzania as an extended program related to the construction of Rusumo Project. Each country received an amount of USD 5 Million for their respective projects. LADP is improving community livelihoods and promoting socially sustainable outcomes of the riparian citizens of the Project affected districts.
The formulation of the LADP projects was a participatory process whereby each district identified LADP priority investment areas. The management of LADP is executed by respective Districts of Ngara (Tanzania), Kirehe and Ngoma (Rwanda) and Busoni and Giteranyi and Busoni Communes (Burundi) under the supervision of the Rusumo Project Implementation Unit (PIU). Implementation of LADPs is guided by the World Bank Safeguards Policies.
