Green Village Construction Among Ways Rwanda & UN are Working Together

During the week commencing May 26, through June 3, 2016, Rwanda joined the international community in marking the 44th World Environment Day (WED), in active partnership with the One UN Rwanda Team and other partners.

The activities ranged from a news conference on May 26 led by the Minister of Natural Resources to Umuganda around the Gashaki Green Village under the patronage of the Prime Minister and participation of several ministers and senior government officials, to public lectures at several higher learning institutions and a walk on June 3rd for air quality and motor vehicle emissions control.

Undoubtedly, these were well thought out activities that did not fail to increase awareness among the Rwandan population about the dangers of climate change and the need for everybody to be involved in reinforcing the implementation of Rwanda's well laid out strategies for green development, sound environmental management and climate resilience.
