DHWG and LDCF3 Projects stakeholders agree on activities to be carried out during the projects implementation

The Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) have on 27th September 2022 convened an inception workshop with stakeholders of two new projects under REMA’s implementation to agree on activities to be carried out during the projects implementation.

Two new projects – Decoupling Hazardous Waste Generation from Economic Growth in Rwanda (DHWG) and the Ecosystem/Landscape Approach to Climate Proof the Rural Settlement Programme of Rwanda (LDCF3) – are set to be launched end October 2022.

The DHWG and LDCF3 Project aim to provide global environmental benefits by enhancing reusing and recycling and build communities’ resilience to the impact of climate change.

The inception workshop is organised at the beginning of the project implementation to introduce the project, its objectives, anticipated results and activities to be undertaken during the project implementation. It also clarifies roles and responsibilities, discuss and agree on decisions and reaffirm commitments amongst project stakeholders.

Stakeholders of both projects reviewed the activities plans and agreed on the plans after making slight changes. They also committed to actively contribute to the projects implementation to ensure all the planned activities are achieved within the projects timelines.

The DHWG is a five-year Project that will be implemented across Rwanda by REMA in partnership with stakeholders including the Rwanda Green Fund (FONERWA) and the Private Sector Federation (PSF) to protect human health and the environment from the adverse effects of hazardous waste, whereas LDCF3 is six-year initiative that will be implemented by REMA, Meteo Rwanda, Rwanda Housing Authority and the Districts of Gakenke and Kirehe to build communities resilience to the impacts of climate change.

Both projects will be implemented with financial support from the Global Environment Facility through the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)
