Green Growth and Climate Resilience Strategy

Due to the faster than predicted impact of climate change there was a need to revise Rwanda's Green Growth and Climate Resilience Strategy (GGCRS). The revised strategy aims to guide national policy and planning in an integrated way, mainstream climate change into all sectors of the economy, and position Rwanda to access international climate funding and green investment.
