Kigali State of the Environment and Outlook Report

dc.contributor.authorRwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA)
dc.descriptionThe report provides decision makers with information about the state of Kigali’s environment and suggests policy responses to make Kigali “a state of the art and aesthetically appealing city”, as per Rwanda’s Vision 2020. The “Kigali State of Environment and Outlook Report 2013” focuses on the status of Kigali’s environment as a fast growing city facing many environmental challenges including inadequate water and energy infrastructures, liquid and solid waste management, air and water pollution as well as unsustainable production and consumption lifestyles. These challenges have the potential to hinder not only its own sustainable economic growth but the country as a whole. Key recommendations of the report include mainstreaming climate adaptation and mitigation strategies into all aspects of city policies, planning and projects
dc.descriptionand incorporating policies to help implement the city’s plans for high-density urban development into all sectors and to integrate social, cultural, economic and environmental aspects into housing policies. Others include implementing a transport system that favours public transit, walking and cycling
dc.descriptiondevising city policies to support the national building code’s new resource efficiency measures and adopting an integrated, proactive flood management approach at the watershed level within the national Disaster Risk Reduction. The “Kigali State of Environment and Outlook Report 2013” is the third in the series of reports on the state of environment in Rwanda. The reports are prepared by REMA every two years. The first Status of Environment and Outlook Report was produced in 2009. In 2011 the report took the form of an “Atlas of Rwanda’s changing environment: Implications for Climate Change Resilience”.
