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.
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.
