On 13 May, Kigali , Rwanda the Minister of State , Ministry of Infrastructure Eng Patricie Uwase and the GGGI Rwanda Country Representative Okechukwu Daniel Ogbonnaya have officially endorsed & signed the new five year 2021-2025 Rwanda Country Planning Framework (CPF). The Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) would like to thank all the stakeholders and partners that gave input in the consultation discussions and review of the revised GGGI Rwanda Country Planning Framework 2021-2025.
As the national development priorities remain at the center of GGGI’s interventions, GGGI through one-on-one consultations was able to revise and draft the new GGGI Rwanda Country Planning Framework and has been officially endorsed and distributed to all stakeholders and partners. GGGI is grateful for the participation and endorsement by the government and key partners who are committed to jointly contributing and collaborating in the implementation of the framework through several synergized programs and projects.
The revised GGGI Rwanda Country Planning Framework will explore areas of intervention on policy development, technical advisory, capacity enhancement, program/project development and green finance mobilization geared at achievement of Sustainable, Inclusive and Transformational Green Growth in Rwanda.
Rwanda has experienced rapid economic growth pre-pandemic at an average of 8% in the last decade, and this has contributed to the transformation of the country within the economic, social and governance pillars as stipulated in the National Strategy for Transformation (NST1).
Rwanda’s vision for a climate resilient green economic growth as articulated in the Green Growth and Climate Resilient Strategy (GGCRS) and the updated Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) presents the government’s commitments towards tackling the impacts of climate change.
The Rwanda CPF is a five-year country level plan that sets out the priority areas for GGGI’s country program in Rwanda. Essentially, these are the key areas of GGGI’s interventions in supporting the green growth transformation of Rwanda’s economy into a green growth model in sync with its NDC, Agenda 2063 and SDG obligations, and national goals and ambitions. The CPF covers the 5-year period 2021 to 2025 and serves to translate the implementation of GGGI’s Strategy 2030, Roadmap 2021-2025, and Africa Regional Strategy at the country program level in line with the country’s national development plans, policies, and development priorities.
Rwanda’s vison 2050 aspires to take Rwanda to high level income standards by the middle of the 21st century and high-quality livelihoods and these aspirations focuses on five broad priorities:
• High quality and standards of life
• Developing Modern Infrastructure and Livelihoods
• Transformation for prosperity
• Values for Vision 2050
• International Cooperation and positioning
The vision would be achieved through the NST1 three main pillars of Economic Transformation, Social Transformation, and Transformational Governance.
Bearing in mind the challenges faced globally due to the impacts of the pandemic, Rwanda’s growth trajectory would be anchored on the roadmap that aims to achieve its green growth plans and targets in partnership with organizations like GGGI.
The Rwanda Country Planning Framework prioritizes sub-sector level interventions for urban resilience & adaptation through:
sustainable landscapes ; building resilience to floods & landslides ; sustainable land use management ; greening the building & construction sector ; demonstrating circular economy in waste management and promoting sustainable mobility in cities
