Green economy Practices/Policies/Initiatives in Rwanda
  • Ecosystem Restoration in Rwanda
    As the protection and management of the environment is one of the pillars of Rwanda?s Vision 2020, the ?country of a thousand hills? has undertaken many initiatives to protect ecosystems for income generation and good governance. Several of these projects, including the initiative to preserve the Rwandan mountain gorilla and wetland restoration efforts in the Nyabarongo-Akagera network and Rugezi, are already beginning to reap environmental, economic, and employment benefits.
  • Environment and Natural Resources Sector Plan
    Rwanda adopted an Environment and Natural Resources Sector plan (2009 - 2013) - "Towards a Green, Clean, Healthy and Wealthy Rwanda", to ensure a sustainable management of natural resources and environment to meet the Economic Development and Poverty Reduction Strategy (EDPRS) and MDG targets, Vision 2020 aspirations and the country?s international commitments.
  • Republic of Rwanda - Green Growth and Climate Resilience: National Strategy for Climate Change and Low Carbon Development
    The Republic of Rwanda released its Green Growth and Climate Resilience ? National Strategy for Climate Change and Low Carbon Development in October 2011. The Strategy aims to build upon work that is already being done in Rwanda on climate change, focusing the various projects and policies in a holistic national document which encompasses the long-term direction as well as short-term priority actions. The Strategy is one of the initial steps on a pathway which leads to a sustainable, secure future where Rwanda is prepared for the risks associated with climate change, population growth and rising oil prices.
  • The Economic Development and Poverty Reduction Strategy of Rwanda
    This policy represents the country?s second medium-term strategy towards the attainment of the long-term Rwanda Vision 2020 Objectives
