Rwanda Signs Agreement with Yale University | New Haven, USA
The Government of Rwanda and Yale University have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to foster greater cooperation and collaboration in the areas of education and research in sustainable development and environmental protection and conservation.
The signing of the agreement took place during a visit by Rwanda’s Minister of Environment, Vincent Biruta, to the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Affairs. Minister Biruta was joined by a delegation that included the CEO of the Rwanda Green Fund, Hubert Ruzibiza and the Acting Director of the Center of Excellence in Biodiversity and Natural Resource Management at the University of Rwanda, Beth Kaplin.
President Peter Salovey and Yale School of Forestry Dean Ingrid C. (Indy) Burke signed the MOU representing the existing and growing commitment of Deans and Faculty to the partnership.
The visit by the delegation came at the invitation of Professor Marian Chertow, Parfait Gasana (MEM, 2018), and Coral Bielecki (MESc, 2018) who serve as liaisons between Yale and Rwanda. The team facilitated the negotiations and will work to advance the partnership in the years to come.
