The Government of Rwanda through the Ministry of Environment and represented by Minister Vincent Biruta, the University of Rwanda, represented by Prof. Beth Kaplin, the Greenhouse Gas Management Institute and the Carbon Institute, represented by John O. Niles, Director at the Carbon Institute, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to develop a joint collaboration to launch an international partnership for carbon accounting in Rwanda and in neighboring countries.

As part of the new international partnership, the Greenhouse Gas Management Institute and the Carbon Institute, in collaboration with the University of Rwanda, will support Rwanda’s green growth agenda through greenhouse gas (GHG) accounting programmes that develop an evidence base for informed climate action.

The seven year partnership will provide the opportunity for Rwanda to become a regional training center for carbon accounting in the Central African Forest Commission (COMIFAC) and Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) regions.
