Low-carbon resilient development in Rwanda

This country report provides an overview of the
three key dimensions of Rwanda’s planning system
– policy frameworks, financial mechanisms and
institutional arrangements – and explains how lowcarbon
resilient development is being integrated
into each of these components. Rwanda is an
early adopter of low-carbon resilient development
and therefore provides an example of how national
governments are working towards climate resilient
planning in different contexts. This report is part of
a comparative research project involving Rwanda,
Ethiopia and Bangladesh which explores how
the low-carbon and climate resilience agendas
can be brought together in national planning.
See Fisher (2013) for a comprehensive overview
of low-carbon resilient development in the least
developed countries.

Project information

Policies for low carbon resilient development aim to support climate resilient development in the poorest countries while also addressing climate change through reducing carbon emissions. This research programme seeks to bring together the two aspects of the climate change debate: mitigation and adaptation.
