AREAS OF INTERVENTION
Species, Habitat and Ecosystems Conservation
Nature Rwanda actively engages in understanding patterns, processes and the complex interactions in search of viable management options for maintaining the health and functionality of ecosystems. Restoration and rehabilitation of natural landscapes considering ecological, social and cultural needs of current and future generations underpins effective ecosystem management strategies of Nature Rwanda.
Climate Change Adaptation
Nature Rwanda's interventions focus on the most vulnerable communities and ecosystems. Nature Rwanda pursues to better apprehend climate change, particularly in terms of its impact on people, nature and economy. It works with communities to plan and implement actions for adaptation at grass-root level with focus on nature based solutions, and with multi-stakeholders for climate literacy and effective climate governance
Environmental Education, Research and Knowledge Management
Nature Rwanda takes environmental education not only as a program for diffusing ideas and conservation messages but also as a means to bring responsive action among individuals, groups and society as a whole. It puts emphasis on both formal and informal environmental education. Nature Rwanda helps create change agents in students and teachers through its school programs by undertaking special conservation education activities, formations and mobilizing of green force clubs, eco-clubs, and environmental teacher’s forum.
Gender and Social Inclusion (GESI)
Nature Rwanda is working closely with local communities ensuring GESI responsiveness from lowland to high mountains to conserve and manage natural resources. Aligned with SDGs and CBD, Nature Rwanda commits to integrate GESI in all its thematic areas. From its very early days, Nature Rwanda has been instrumental in engaging and empowering women's groups by the bringing them to the forefront of conservation. Success in GESI have been made through valuable differences we continue to realize through exposure and capacity enhancement, entrepreneurship development particularly in tourism and green business, institutionalization of women's groups and building on indigenous tradition and knowledge for local solutions
