#AGGF2018 Event: Rwanda Green Growth Roundtable

Date & Time: 27 November 2018 | 16:00 – 18:30

Location: AD 10, Kigali Convention Centre

Session Overview

For more than two decades, Rwanda has incorporated the environment into its national development plans and strategies. As a result, the country has created a strong legal, institutional and policy framework for environmental protection and green growth. Rwanda is now working towards becoming a developed, climate resilient nation by 2050.

To advance the implementation of this green growth ambition, especially through the Green Growth and Climate Resilience Strategy (GGCRS), the Strategic Programme for Climate Resilience (SPCR), and the NDC Partnership Plan, a roundtable will be held with key stakeholders to assess opportunities and avenues to realise Rwanda’s sustainable development vision.

The roundtable will bring together key partners in Rwanda’s green growth journey including development partners, private investors, representatives of international multilateral institutions, philanthropists and friends of Rwanda. Rwanda’s green growth and climate resilience vision will be presented, with a focus on the GGCRS, the SPCR and NDC Partnership Plan, to determine how these partners can contribute towards the implementation of these key programmes.

The roundtable will highlight green and climate responsive investment opportunities to investors and partners, and will provide high level guidance to establish contacts and subsequent relations with investors and partners.
