Kigali, Rwanda

This GEF-8 Regional Workshop took place in Kigali, Rwanda, on October 11-14, with participants from countries in Eastern and Southern Africa, the GEF Secretariat, GEF agencies, and partners. It was part of a series of workshops to give countries an overview of the GEF-8 programming strategies, with a particular focus on the GEF-8 Integrated Programs (IPs) and how they will be rolled out. Specific breakout groups allowed more in-depth discussions on the different IPs, as well as regional challenges and opportunities.

A field trip was organized to the Nyandungu Eco-Tourism Park where urban wetlands have been restored with support from the GEF under the Least Developed Countries Fund (LDCF).
