  • Establishment of Radical Terraces
    for Erosion control
    Terraces have played a critical role
    in controlling soil erosion in Gicumbi District
    as well as contributing to increased agricultural productivity.
  • Transforming existing
    practices into climate
    resilient practices
    Enabling the community to continue adapting
    to future climate variability and change
    beyond the lifetime of the project.
  • Supporting the Communities for
    Climate Resilience
    Through the Community Adaptation Fund (CAF) funded by the World Bank
    77 local cooperatives have been empowered on climate resilience and trained
    on the development of environmental and climatechange-related projects to
    ensure the sustainability of the project gains.
  • Promoting sustainable
    forestry & sustainable
    energy
    The growth and diversification of forests through
    sustainable forestry management is a step in
    the right direction in supporting the achievement of Rwanda’s forestry targets
  • Climate Change is Real.
    We must adapt
    to its effects
    Reducing vulnerability to climate change by enhancing
    the adaptive capacity of the targeted groups as well as
    reducing their exposure to climate risks.

Green Gicumbi Project targets to reach 150,000 vulnerable population living in the project intervention area as direct beneficiaries.
