Rwandan Government Urging Private Sector to be Proactive Against Climate Change

Rwanda's private sector needs to be proactive in accessing the various funds that are available to mitigate climate change, this is the message Coletha Ruhamya, Acting Director of Rwanda Environment Management Authority wants to spread.

This comes in light of Environment Week which ends on June 5 to coincide with World Environment Day.

According to Ruhamya, developing countries need over 30 billion dollars annually to address the effects of climate change.

Rwanda's Fund for Environment and Climate Change supports different actions in both the private and public sector as does the Green Climate Fund but Ruhamya feels more can be done.

"I am calling to our private sector to be proactive, to be able to access that finance," said Ruhamya.
