Sectors (Kinyarwanda: Imirenge, sing. umurenge, French: Secteurs) are the third level administrative subdivision in the African nation of Rwanda. The Provinces of Rwanda are subdivided into 30 districts (Rwanda: uturere, sing. akarere). Each district is in turn divided into sectors. There are 416 Sectors.[1] This entire administrative structure is undergoing a process of decentralisation -- devolving greater authority to local governments and Municipalities -- following an administrative reorganisation begun in 2002.[2]
