Small and landlocked, Rwanda is hilly and fertile with a densely packed population of about 12.5 million people (2018). It borders the far larger and richer Democratic Republic of Congo, as well as its closest East African neighbours, Tanzania, Uganda, and Burundi. Rwanda has guarded its political stability since the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi. Parliamentary elections in September 2018 saw women fill 64% of the seats. Rwanda now aspires to reach middle-income country status by 2035 and high-income country status by 2050. This aspiration will be carried out through a series of seven-year National Strategies for Transformation, underpinned by detailed sectoral strategies that are aimed toward achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (World Bank, 2020)
