Collaboration to build regional capacity in Rwanda
The Government of Rwanda through the Ministry of Environment and represented by Minister Vincent
Biruta, the University of Rwanda, represented by Prof. Beth Kaplin, the Greenhouse Gas Management
Institute and the Carbon Institute, represented by John O. Niles, Director at the Carbon Institute, have
signed a Memorandum of Understanding to develop a joint collaboration to launch an international
partnership for carbon accounting in Rwanda.
As part of the new international partnership, the Greenhouse Gas Management Institute and the Carbon
Institute, in collaboration with the University of Rwanda, will support Rwanda’s green growth agenda
through greenhouse gas (GHG) accounting programs that develop an evidence base for informed
climate action. This groundbreaking agreement will enhance the implementation of Rwanda’s Green
Growth and Climate Resilience Strategy and enable the country to fully participate in international
emissions reduction mechanisms.
