The Government of Rwanda (GoR) with support from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is implementing the Strategic Capacity Building Initiative (SCBI). Official implementation of the SCBI began in November 2011 and the programme is set to run for up to June 2018. The objective of the SCBI is to 'build capacity and deliver on government priorities' at the same time. The Ministry of Natural Resources (MINIRENA) is responsible for the full implementation of the SCBI in the mining sector.
At its core, the SCBI concentrates on `transfer of skills and knowledge from international experts to young professionals in Rwanda's mining administration. The intention of government is that these young Rwandese women and men become experts themselves and contribute to improving the performance and efficiency of the sector with the ultimate aim of increasing revenue and the benefit to citizens from mining activities.

The mining sector is the country's leading export earner, in spite of the need to address several capacity gaps, Last year alone (2013), mining export accounted for USD 226 million.
The GoR has taken several steps to set the conditions for progress. Mining sector development in Rwanda is transforming through increased privatization, improvements in the legal and regulatory framework and a strong policy and strategy to chart the way forward. However, a number of factors still inhibit its full growth, including: (1) low skills, low experience and low exposure in various aspects of the mining sector; (2) limited capacity in monitoring and regulatory enforcement; (3) lack of knowledge and skills required to attract investment, (4) limited knowledge of geological reserves and, (5) limited understanding of the economics of minerals and mining agreements.
It is within this context that government plan to recruit in key areas requiring capacity to build strong expertise and deliver on existing priorities.
