Behind successful transformation of any institution or sector there is an effectual partnership, which emphases prior commitments from stakeholders to address uncertainties to sustainable tourism. The tourism stakeholder commitments are reflected in the public-private partnership, stakeholder-oriented planning, and the government sponsored development. In Rwanda, the public-private partnership identified is considered for development of public services, though challenged with indistinguishable responsibilities of actors. The tourism stakeholder-oriented planning favors the constant invitation of private stakeholders to always participate in the elaboration of some tourism development strategies but constrained with capital shortage and institutions weakness. The government sponsored tourism developments are visible but lack levy fund for that. However, more elaborated partnerships are needed to motivate investors, stakeholder-oriented planning needs more capacity building, and state-sponsored tourism developments need earmarked fund.
