Rwanda: Climate Change Issues to Watch in 2016

2016 has started with a sense of optimism about climate change following the adoption of the Paris climate agreement last December.

This is the first ever international commitment to take concrete measures to reduce emissions and help vulnerable countries adapt to the impacts of a changing climate by also providing enough finance for poor countries to implement the agreement in 2020.

Rwanda welcomed the deal aimed at limiting the increase in global temperatures to below two degrees with the ambition to reach lower than 1.5 degrees Celsius-below pre-industrial levels especially for countries most vulnerable to climate change effects.

But there are key climate issues still to watch this year.
