National Biodiversity Strategy, and Action Plan and Country Report to the COP

Project Summary

The Biodiversity Enabling Activity for Rwanda will assist the Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MINETO) in developing a National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (BSAP). The BSAP will build on and reinforce other existing national strategies and plans, such as the National Environment Strategy. It will also provide a framework for parallel implementation of a GEF Short Term Response Measure (STRM) to control degradation in the Gishwati and Nyungwe forests. The project will allow Rwanda to meet its obligations under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) by assisting the preparation of an Interim Report to the Conference of Parties (COP) of June 1997 and its first National Report to the COP.
