On October 7th, 2014 the Rwanda Natural Resources Authority and the Belgian Federal Directorate-General for the Environment organised the workshop ‘Sustainable Charcoal Production and the Potential Role of Climate Financing – Identifying and Prioritizing Appropriate Actions and Interventions’.

The workshop aimed at:

  • introducing participants to climate financing in general and giving them an overview of the current status in Rwanda
  • presenting the initial findings from a study on the charcoal production sector carried out by CAMCO/Climate Care
  • discussing the appropriateness and feasibility of the actions and interventions that have been identified
  • prioritising the actions and interventions and providing guidance for the further work of Camco/Climate Care.

87 stakeholders (tree growers, charcoal producers, transporters and and wholesalers/retailers) and representatives from national and local governments, NGOs, the private sector and the donor community actively participated in the workshop.
