Rwanda's Rulino River Conservation Project Creates 5000 Green Jobs

A Rwf1.9-billion conservation project has helped create jobs for more than 4,815 people in Rulindo District.

The project, dubbed “Restoring Yanze River and watershed through scaling up agro-forestry technologies for resilience to climate change and improving the livelihood of the communities,” is financed by Rwanda Green Fund (FONERWA) in partnership with the UK Department for International Development (DFID).

The three-year project operates in Mbogo, Rusiga, Shyorongi and Ngoma sectors.

During a field tour, the project manager, Manasseh Nshimiyimana, said FONERWA provided 80 per cent of the funds. The district paid the rest.
