Climate risk country profile: Rwanda

This report discusses Rwanda's country risk profile. Despite the country’s overall positive growth and development over the past 25 years, Rwanda is still highly vulnerable to impacts from climate change through its high dependence on rain-fed agriculture, as well as need to improve its road networks, health sector and water resource management. In Rwanda, the high levels of poverty and low-degree of development limits capacity of poor households and communities to manage climate risk, increasing their vulnerability to climate-related shocks.
