The study aims at analyzing the impact of Value Added Tax (VAT) on prices of processed staple foods in Rwanda and its resultant effects on people’s welfare. Particular emphasis was put on processed maize flour on assumption that current maize production in Rwanda will be cheaper and absorbed by the poor due to the policy of crop intensification.

This study intended to inform civil society and policy makers on the impact of policy changes on the people’s nutrition improvement, wellbeing and health.

The overall purpose of this assignment is to produce a documentary film for the study on "the impact of value added tax on processed staple foods and nutrition in Rwanda: a case study of processed maize". The documentary film will be used as a tool for advocacy regarding issues raised by this specific study.
