REMA conducts a site visit for interested bidders in four wetlands to be rehabilitated in the City of Kigali

The Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA) has on 22nd and 23rd August 2023 conducted a guided tour for interested bidders in the five wetlands to be rehabilitated in the city of Kigali by REMA through the Second Rwanda Urban Development Project (RUDP2).

Twenty-three companies have participated in the site visit, and so far, more than a half of them have expressed their interest to bid for the construction works and landscaping restoration activities for Gikondo, Rugenge-Rwintare, Nyabugogo and Kibumba wetlands to be rehabilitated in the City of Kigali by REMA through the RUDP2 Project.

The construction works – that include the site mobilization works, hydraulic works, landscaping activities and the construction of public restrooms – are planned to start by November 1, 2023 and end on October 30, 2025.

RUDP II project came as continuation of the RUDP I with an additional scope of interventions in wetlands rehabilitation, flood control, urban planning and several technical assistance studies to be funded by the World Bank in partnership with Global Environment Facility (GEF), the Nordic Development Fund and Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR).

REMA is implementing the component of Evidence-based, sustainable wetland management, flood risk management and greenhouse gas monitoring.

Activities under the above-mentioned component will focus on wetland rehabilitation by designing, implementing and monitoring nature-based solutions to reduce flood risks, enhance biodiversity and strengthen resilience in the City of Kigali.

The primary focus will be on the rehabilitation of wetlands that have been impacted by historical land-uses, such as industrial use and urbanization, which have resulted in loss of water quality and wetlands’ biodiversity.
