A collaborative agreement between Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA) and University of Rwanda (UR) for sponsored research under the project Ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) in degraded wetlands, forest and savannah sponsored by LCDF II/REMA has enabled 10 research grants to be awarded to UR Masters students with successful research proposals in line with the EbA project criteria.
The REMA project is called “Building resilience of communities living in degraded forests, savannahs and wetlands of Rwanda through an Ecosystem-based Adaptation approach” and abbreviated as LDCF-II. The main objectives of the LDCF-II project are to build resilience of communities living in degraded forests, savannahs, and wetlands in Rwanda, using Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) approaches.
The Center of Excellence in Biodiversity & Natural Resource Management (CoEB) at the University of Rwanda College of Science and Technology is collaborating with the LCDF II/REMA project to meet project objectives under EbA approaches. The CoEB is well positioned to become a key technical partner with REMA and LAFREC to implement the research component of this project.
Application Deadline: 24 May 2019.
