Environment and Poverty Reduction in Rwanda: An Assessment

United Nations Environment Programme ; United Nations Development Programme (2006)

How serious are the environment and human development concerns in Rwanda? Are the concerns of rapid economic growth compromising sustainable development and the reduction of poverty in the long run? Have past policy performances depended at least partly on unsustainable use of the environment to promote economic growth? If so how? Can a change of approach and outlook serve better the desire for economic growth with sustainable development? Can the physical and human development in Rwanda be better used for poverty reduction? How?
