Climate-Smart Agriculture project was developed and is being implemented by RDIS organisation together with two dioceses of the Anglican church of Rwanda, namely Shyogwe and Cyangugu. The project is implemented in two phases, starting with Cyangugu diocese. It is meant to address the adverse effects of climate change, such as land degradation, deforestation, lower food production, unemployment etc, while also complementing the nation's efforts in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Rwanda.
The general objective of this project is therefore to increase farmer's productivity by introducing the use of solar-powered irrigation farming and greenhouses technologies, as well as to enhance environmental protection in the communities by providing training on field to 200 households in Nyamiyaga sector and 200 households in Kamembe sector.
