This project seeks to increase the capacity of Rwanda Government’s Environment and Natural Resources (ENR)Thematic Sector Working Groups (TSWGs) with a focus on strengthening their functions and activities to inform sub-national level actors on green growth and climate resilience that will lead to the delivery of climate actions in their respective sectors, subsectors, and communities. The overall results will lead to successful implementation of key national strategies and plans including the Seven Year Government Programme: National Strategy for Transformation (NST1, 2017/2024), Sector Strategic Plans (SSPs, 2018/2024), District Development Strategies (DDS, 2018/2024) and the Green City Development Master Plans (2019-2050). These strategies and plans are aligned with the Green Growth and Climate Resilience Strategy (GGCRS) and Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to stimulate green economic development and green investment in Rwanda’s secondary cities and others emerging urban centers.
The focus on capacitating sector platforms and thematic areas is also aimed at reaching out to different groups, associations and institutions at the sub-national level in the thirty (30) Districts of Rwanda. In addition, guidance, tools and modules that will ensure readiness and awareness to design, implement and monitor green growth and climate resilient projects will be at the heart of this project. This includes the upgrading of the existing Rwanda Climate Portal and establishment of portal user’s forum from environment sector development partners and stakeholders, to serve as main source of climate data and information in Rwanda. The proposed project presents an opportunity towards building stronger linkages and collaboration amongst the different sector stakeholders whose role is to implement government plans and policies.
