DescriptionThe main objective of this proposal is to enable the country to fulfil its commitments and obligations as required by Articles 4.1 and 12.1 of the UNFCCC, especially the preparation and the reporting of its initial national communication as required by Article 12.1 (a), (b) and (c) of the Convention based on the recommended COP2 guidelines and format for non-Annex 1 Parties. Through the process, it is expected that the country would be able to build up its scientific and technical capacity so that it can sustain all activities related to the national communication and the implementation of the UNFCCC. This will be achieved by training of project team and strengthening the capacity of appropriate national institutions. This national communication will highlight priority areas for sustainable development. At present Rwanda has not participated in any enabling activities initiated by any donor country or UN agencies conducive to its implementation of the UNFCCC. Thus this proposal is the first of its kind in the country.
