Rwanda joined the NDC Partnership on 8 June 2018, appointing Focal Points in the Ministry of Environment and the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning. Since joining, Rwanda has engaged with the Partnership in elaborating country needs for NDC implementation into clear goals and outputs. This effort started with request for support, to which the Partnership consolidated support from seven development partners. This includes support for developing the data for quantifying emission reduction targets with an eye on the next NDC revision and enabling frameworks for key NDC sectors, including transport, land use, agriculture, energy and disaster risk management. This framework for action, or Partnership Plan, also includes flagship projects for low-carbon, climate resilient development, such as: natural gas harvesting from Lake Kivu for household energy consumption; urban forestry and landscape restoration in hillsides outside of Kigali; and a pilot green city project that makes Rwanda’s urbanization process more sustainable. Through sector consultations and in coordination with existing governance mechanisms, including Sector Working Groups, Rwanda has ensured its needs for NDC implementation reflect the needs of the sectors and other national offices.
